Victorian Christmas is quickly approaching and the City of Thomasville would like to invite citizens to the Victorian Christmas closet. The Victorian Christmas closet will be open to the public Monday, November 15th through December 3rd inside the Thomasville Visitors Center located at 144 East Jackson Street. The hours are Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We are excited to re-open the Victorian Christmas closet in anticipation of the return of our traditional Victorian Christmas festivities this year,” said Madison Eaton, Special Events Coordinator. “This is such a fun tradition for our community and is a must-see for locals and visitors alike.”
Eaton says that the closet features costume pieces for men, women, and children of all ages and sizes. “We have several Victorian styles in various sizes, including hats, skirts, shirts, accessories, vests, and more,” said Eaton. “The closet helps transform the streets of historic Downtown Thomasville into a scene from a Hallmark movie. To see everyone dressed in Victorian clothing and our downtown brick and mortar businesses feature Victorian architecture truly takes you back to the Victorian-era of our city.”
Costume rentals are $10 per person and require a $25 deposit. “Deposits will be refunded when items are returned dry cleaned by January 14, 2022,” said Eaton. Costume pieces are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Victorian Christmas will be held Thursday and Friday, December 9th and 10th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. both evenings in Downtown Thomasville.
