Experience America's oldest Christmas tradition.

This is Santa's Candy Castle's 16th year of hosting this FREE event. Each year the event grows in popularity, becoming a cherished Christmas tradition for more & more families. Our event has been featured in national media & has been called one of the best free Christmas events in the country.

Gather around the fire as we recreate the experience of chestnut roasting as it was done centuries ago by American pioneers.

Hear the fascinating story of why chestnut roasting is America's oldest Christmas tradition, why the tradition has nearly been lost, and our efforts to preserve the tradition for future generations.

Watch a demonstration of how American pioneers prepared chestnuts and roasted them over an open fire.

Taste a freshly roasted chestnut & let us know what you think. Join guests from around the country as we sample chestnuts and share our thoughts on the unique taste.

Try it yourself. Guests will have the chance to grab a long-handled roasting pan and try their hand at chestnut roasting. The perfect Christmas photo op!

This FREE EVENT takes place every Saturday night between Thanksgiving & Christmas from 6:00 – 7:00 pm CT.
