Help Us Create Holiday Cheer!
DCHV will be bringing cheer to people of all ages this holiday season with a light-up drive-thru event. The socially-distanced event will be free to the public and feature 15 holiday displays. Some displays will hark back to Christmas in the 1900s while others will use Christmas decorations of today! The Christmas In The Village event will be open December 5-6 & 12-13.
While the event will be free to the public (with donations accepted) it will still cost quite a bit to set up. You can help us create a truly fun event by making a donation on this page between now and November 19th. Donations will be used to help purchase lights and displays for the drive-thru event that can be used for years to come! Alternatively, donations will also help support DCHV as it continues to bring the past to the present.
Dakota City Heritage Village is a 1900-era village and museum dedicated to connecting people to the rural past.

Ahlberg Heritage Center, our museum, houses more than 10,000 artifacts depicting social and rural history, with an emphasis on agriculture.
