Things To Do This Thanksgiving Break


If you’re like me, and enjoy having nothing to do, this article may not be for you. However, if you are like 99% of my friends, and the idea of an empty to-do list gives you FOMO (fear of missing out) and/or crippling anxiety then I have just the thing for you this Thanksgiving Break. So without further ado here’s a list of what’s good for this break!




  • Carmel Christkindlmarkt Open in Hamilton County

  • ‘Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure’ at the Eiteljorg Museum

  • Christmas City Walkway of Lights in Marion


  • “Lights at the Brickyard” Holiday Display at the Indianapolus Motor Speedway

  • Zumba and Wine at Chateau Thomas Winery in Plainfield


  • Festival of Trees at the Indiana History Center

  • ‘Fantasy of Lights’ Holiday Light Show in Fort Wayne


  • Miscellaneous and Antique Auction at Shipshewana Flea Market

  • ‘Snow Days’ at Foellinger - Freimann Botanical Conservatory in Fort Wayne


  • Inaugural “Winterlights” Holiday Light Exhibit at Newfields

  • Christmas City Walkway of Lights in Marion

  • Gingerbread Village at Conner Prairie


  • Artisan Holiday Market at Beech Grove High School

  • ‘Cars and Coffee’ at Gateway Classic Cars in Indianapolis

  • Jolly Days Winter Wonderland at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis


As I was making this list I realized that Indy did the classic ‘skip over Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas’ stunt this year, but if you can get over that, I think these events will be a lot of fun!  If you don’t see anything appealing on this list, there’s a bigger one with even more events right here (x)!
