The Issaquah History Museums will host its ninth annual Holiday Open House on Saturday December 1st. The event is open to the public and free of charge. The event will take place at the Issaquah Depot (150 1ST Avenue NE) and will run from 11 AM to 4 PM. 

The Issaquah History Museums’ Holiday Open House is a popular event featuring a visit from Santa, a holiday craft fair, activities for the whole family to enjoy, as well as homemade cookies, coffee, and cocoa. Toe-tapping live music will add to the festive atmosphere. The event is open to the public, free of charge. 

Holiday Craft Fair

Local crafters will be at the Depot to sell hand-made items. This is a perfect opportunity to stock up on gifts and stocking stuffers. The tables will be open from 11 AM to 4 PM. 

Visit with Santa Claus

The Issaquah History Museums is pleased to present Santa Claus, who will take time out of his busy holiday schedule to chat with children. Children may visit with Santa from 11 AM to 2 PM. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras for a memorable holiday photo. 

Children’s Craft Table

While waiting for Santa, kids will have an opportunity to craft holiday ornaments inspired by vintage ornaments in the Issaquah History Museums’ collection. They will have a chance to examine the antique ornaments, explore a bit of history in a hands-on manner, and take home a decoration they have made themselves. The children’s craft table will be open from 11 AM to 2 PM.
