Victorian Christmas workers in costumeThe Victorian Christmas costume closet will be open to the public beginning Tuesday, November 12th through December 13th. The costume closet is located inside the Thomasville Visitors Center (144 East Jackson Street) and is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (closed on holidays).

“Victorian Christmas is one of Thomasville’s most special and memorable events,” said Madison Eaton, City of Thomasville events coordinator. “Seeing our community come together and dress up in Victorian era attire really sets Victorian Christmas apart and transports attendees to a bygone era. We encourage everyone to participate and have a fun time in costume!”

The Victorian Christmas costume closet features costume pieces for men, women, and children of all ages and sizes. “Every year we add new pieces to our collection,” said Eaton. “We have many different Victorian styles in various sizes, including hats, skirts, shirts, accessories, vests and more. We encourage participants to use their creativity when piecing together a Victorian look. Oftentimes you can pair items in your own closet with Victorian pieces for an easy and fun look. For instance, add a Victorian hat and jacket to dark pants and voila!”

Costume pieces are available on a first-come-first-served-basis. Costume rentals are $10/per person plus a $25 deposit; deposits are returned when costumes are returned with a dry cleaning receipt and tags. Costumes are due back to the closet by Monday, January 6, 2020.

Victorian Christmas will be held in downtown Thomasville on Thursday and Friday, December 12th and 13th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. both evenings.
