Christmas in Old Baltimore with Historian Wayne Schaumburg

November 17, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$10 | Register

In mentally gearing up for this year’s holiday season, have you ever wondered which Baltimore holiday traditions have changed over the years and which have stayed the same? Join Baltimore historian and educator Wayne R. Schaumburg for a talk on “Christmas In Old Baltimore” to get a little insight. Mr. Schaumburg will focus on some of Baltimore’s great holiday customs from the 1940s to the 1960s, including downtown shopping, visiting Santa, the Toytown Parade, firehouse train gardens, and even our favorite holiday topic to quibble over: aluminum trees. We hope you can join us!

This talk is a partnership between Baltimore Heritage and the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion. This program and our speaker series have been funded by Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts.
