Christmas In Alma
Visit Us Today
Christmas celebrations have taken place in Alma, Wisconsin for over 160 years along the shores of the frozen Mississippi River and below the bluffs towering over Alma. These celebrations were a long-standing tradition among Alma's early Swiss and German settlers in the mid-19th century and they were continued when they settled in Wisconsin. Our 1840s village will be trimmed for the holidays with the promise of warmth and good cheer. You'll find that the businesses and community of Alma truly know how to celebrate Christmas. Join in the festivities and enjoy Christmas away from the big box stores in the small unique Mississippi river town of Alma, Wisconsin.
