NEW INDOOR SHOWROOM!!! Located at the far end of the Piggly Wiggly Plaza on Orchard Street (past the restaurants).
Day After Thanksgiving-New Year's Day
Antioch eagerly anticipates another season of our newest Holiday Program for ...Kringle's Christmas Village Tour! Thanks to the generosity of Dee from Zion, Antioch is the new home of Kringle's Christmas Village Tour.
You'll browse in awe at the dozens of oversized shadowboxes that are filled to the brim with quaint scenes. The holiday comes alive as you enjoy the ambiance of quaint Downtown Antioch while you enjoy meandering around town visiting our Dicken's Scenes and popping in our NEW INDOOR SHOWROOM to view our various shadowbox scenes and other fun decor! (Indoor location is at the Piggly Wiggly Plaza on Orchard Street, far west-end spot), there is plenty of parking!
DIRECTIONS FROM INTERSECTION OF ROUTES 173 & 83- Go North on Route 83 to the 2nd traffic light, which is Orchard Street, turn left (west). Approximately 100 feet before the stop sign, turn left into Orchard Plaza and Kringle's Christmas Village Indoor Showroom is on the far West End.
Our supersized shadowboxes rival some of the best display windows anywhere during the holidays! Each display is filled with miniature fun of all aspects of life...Santa being welcomed home on Dec. 26 by Mrs. Claus while the elves have an "after Christmas" party next door (pictured here)... A salon with a reindeer under the hairdryer reading a magazine on fur styles...A shop filled with shoes and purses, in miniature, that intrigue our shopping enthusiasts...Snowway, which is a fun place for lunch or dinner-pick your own fillings, etc. and enjoy your meal-miniature style...and dozens more! All are lighted and most have movable figures.
This is perfect for bus tours, families, and friends to enjoy! We will have a complimentary Walking Tour Brochure for you. Bus tours can enjoy the benefit of a complimentary tour guide for groups of 20+ (donations appreciated). Large groups may also enjoy a Kringle Luncheon or Dinner (requires 30 days advance notice).

On Saturdays in December, you'll find various family-friendly activities at our new Kringle INDOOR SHOWROOM, located at the far end of the Piggly Wiggly Plaza on Orchard Street in Downtown Antioch, IL.
