The Oakdale Cowboy Museum will host the annual Cowboy Christmas Western Market at 355 E. F Street, in Oakdale on Saturday, Nov. 28 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Special guest Cowboy Santa is scheduled to show up for pictures from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in front of the Cowboy Museum.
Appropriate social distancing will be encouraged for this year’s event to comply with COVID-19 protocols but the market will feature a wide variety of cottage, crafts, and home goods vendors as well as food and snack vendors.
Entry is free to the public, with free parking available in the public lot on G Street near the railroad tracks. Public restrooms will be provided.
Children may drop off their letters to Santa and there will be a special Christmas lighting at sunset. Drawings for baskets and prizes will be held throughout the day as well.
If you’re feeling the spirit of the season, bring non-perishable food items or wrapped children’s gifts to The Cowboy Museum and receive a free drawing ticket. The donated items will be utilized to help make the holidays brighter for local families in need this season.
Cowboy Christmas remains a source of joy and revenue for the community and The Cowboy Museum is thrilled to keep the tradition alive with this modified version for 2020.
