Start a New Winter Tradition with WinterFaire Make Lasting Memories in A New Magical Winter Wonderland


Experience the joy and wonder of WinterFaire, an enchanting winter wonderland hosted at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis. The new family tradition provides a festive, carnival-like atmosphere filled with delightful games, hands-on activities, and heartwarming encounters with adorable animal characters.

INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Experience a brand-new magical indoor winter wonderland called WinterFaire at the world's largest children's museum. It is sure to become a new tradition for all this season. Visitors can expect to see a festive, carnival-like atmosphere complete with fun games, hands-on activities, adorable animal characters, special visits with Santa and sliding down the iconic 47-foot-long Winter Slide.

A magical winter wonderland brings woodland characters to life as children and their grownups play skee ball and hit virtual targets with snowballs to create new family members.

Once inside the enchanting new winter forest, museum-goers will meet five adorable animal characters. At the entrance, a fluffy red fox named Ember welcomes families with a smile. In the center of the space, visitors will find Indigo, a mystical and knowledgeable chameleon perched on a magical fountain. When children and their grown-ups work together to touch symbols on the fountain, its frozen plumes will change colors. Touching all six at the same time will make Indigo's body light up as well. Energetic and carefree, a harbor seal named Flip encourages kids of all ages to play a variety of games. The brave and adventurous ice phoenix, Storm, greets visitors at the ice cave where children will discover activities designed around building, jumping, climbing and balancing. Last, but not least, meet Gerty, a sweet and creative beaver who presides over the Artisans Corner. Not only will visitors find objects made from a variety of materials from around the world on display, but they will have the opportunity to grab an apron and create a bright, colorful design or play shopkeeper in the store. During select times, programs are offered in Gerty's Workshop and families can begin a new tradition by designing a lantern to use during a WinterFaire-y Tale. Then, they can take the magical memento home! WinterFaire is open now through February 11, 2024. Zip down the giant slide through January 7, 2024.
