Tis’ the season! Winter wonderland fun returns as Alpenrose Dairy prepares to open Christmas in Dairyville featuring Storybook Lane. Alpenrose Dairy and the Cadonau family, along with the 4-H Discovery Farm at Alpenrose, open the gates to Storybook Lane on November 30 and invite the community to experience this family-friendly holiday tradition.

Christmas in Dairyville with Storybook Lane has been a Portland holiday tradition since 1961. It’s a winter wonderland filled with over 300 festive trees, live animals bringing to life various scenes in Storybook Lane, modular train displays, old-fashioned movie screenings in the iconic Opera House, dance performances, and carolers and choirs singing joyful songs of the Christmas season.

You can stroll the vintage storefronts of Dairyville, stop by the holiday gift shop, enjoy a cup of cocoa or apple cider and treat yourself to homemade goodies from the bakery. Returning this year to Storybook Lane is the Mom Made Market. Visitors can enjoy onsite shopping from local moms in business. And last, but certainly not least, stop by and see the big man himself, Santa! Whisper your Christmas wish and get your photo taken with him.”

Christmas in Dairyville will be open Fridays 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays & Sundays 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. from November 30th-December 16th.

Professional Santa photos will be available November 30 – December 2, 7-9 and 14-16 from 10:00am-6:00pm. Santa will also be available December 21-23 from 10 a.m.–6 p.m. however please note that Storybook Lane and all other attractions will be closed on those days.

Admission is free but we will be accepting donations of new unwrapped toys to benefit local foster children in need and canned food for the Oregon Food Bank if you would like to give. Proceeds from various sales at Storybook Lane will benefit several charities throughout Oregon including local 4-H programs.
