Take a fun journey through a Christmas Village with this website. Since its beginning in 1962, visitors to downtown Ogden, Utah, have enjoyed the display of a “dazzling winter wonderland set aglow with Christmas lights and a unique setting of cottages modeled after Santa’s village at the North Pole.”

There are a few ways to navigate the tour: 

  • Use the arrows on the sides of the images to move back and forth through the images.
  • Click a number on the map to see the building’s display.
  • Use the thumbnails at the bottom of the screen to select an image.

Each cottage includes its name, sponsor, and most have the date when it was built. A sampling of cottages you will see are: 

  • Carnegie Free Library
  • North Pole Express
  • AmeriCan-Fix-It Ski Shop
  • The Church of Hope
  • Nani’s Cottage
  • Nutcracker Nook
  • Polarview Manor
  • Santa’s Garage
  • Frosty’s Firehouse

And over 50 more whimsically themed displays.

If you live near Ogden, Utah, the village is traditionally open from the Saturday after Thanksgiving through January 1.

This simple and fun little tour is a nice addition to your holidays.
