Holiday Train Show

Sunday, December 31, 2023 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Sunday, January 14, 2024 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

1/7/24 We will be closed today because of the weather.

From 1 to 4 PM

Arts on the Lake’s annual Holiday Model Train show continues to be open on the weekends through January 14th. Come enjoy on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4 PM. 


This year’s holiday event, for both children young and old, is greatly expanded with wonderful additions and of course, The Nutcracker Railroad. We have had help this year from artists - who are also train enthusiasts - who have donated many items as well as built a faux locomotive front for pictures with the children and grandchildren.


With a Holiday Village and many miniature scenes, watching the trains also becomes a searching for miniature Santas, kids throwing snowballs, newspaper boys, a barbershop, a naughty dog, snow sleds, a beautiful carousel and so much more. On top of that, you will find billboards of many of our local businesses!

Admission is a suggested $2 or more donation, payable at the door!  Any amounts will be greatly appreciated as we intend to provide this setup each year for the holidays. 


If you would like to have a billboard for your business, a tremendous real estate deal, please contact email to address below.


If you are a train buff and would like to participate and help us please email Ed Durkee at
