2023 Christmas at the Fort: Nov.21 - Jan. 6

Our annual celebration of the holidays with Lights, Music, Holiday Market, and Open Doors in the Fort.

Take a ride to Historic Fort Steuben and Fort Steuben Park to experience a family-friendly, memory-making, selfie-shooting weekend. Situated in downtown Steubenville, Fort Steuben Park is transformed into a holiday destination dominated by the 32' Christmas tree and a canopy of colored lights and music where artisans are selling their wares and visitors can indulge in sweet treats.


The event begins with Steubenville Lights Up the Night, on November 21 when the Holiday Market opens, musical and dance performances are presented, and the sky is lit with spectacular fireworks.


For the four weekends after Thanksgiving, the Holiday Market will be open and additional events and activities will be offered including trips around the downtown on the Holly Trolley, movies and puppet shows, and live entertainment.


Inside the Visitor Center, youngsters can write Letters to Santa and watch the model train chug around the Winter Village. The Holiday Gift Shoppe is open with gifts, decor, souvenirs, books, post cards, puzzles, craft kits, and more.


A full schedule of activities at Christmas at the Fort as well as the additional holiday events in town including the Steubenville Nutcracker Village will be posted on website as well as this page as it is developed and confirmed.
