Christmas on Main StreetEnjoy the wonders of a small-town Christmas amidst the gas-lit Main Street and surrounding hills of Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, by experiencing Wellsboro’s Second Annual Christmas on Main Street celebration on the second weekend in December. Stay at the Penn Wells Hotel & Lodge and enjoy our Sunday Santa Brunch included with your stay. Make it a package by adding dinner in our Lounge warmed by our wood-burning fireplace or a discounted gift card to Dunham’s Department Store. Dunham’s is one of the only remaining independent department stores in the United States and holiday shoppers are often heard to say, “I remember when we had a store like this in our town.” But in Wellsboro, you can still experience the traditional Christmas season of your childhood.
Christmas on Main Street weekend features hot chocolate and coffee tastings at Café 1905 where we proudly serve Starbucks coffee; a $1 movie event (“Home Alone” at 11 a.m. Saturday) at the Arcadia Theatre, the art deco theatre that neighbors the Historic Penn Wells; and other events and specials at the independent shops located up and down Wellsboro’s Main Street. The Deane Center for the Performing Arts welcomes children to meet and have photos taken with Santa Claus on Friday (4 p.m. – 7 p.m.), hosted by the Fifth Season.
