OKLAHOMA CITY ─ A Candy Cane Christmas joyfully returns as the American Banjo Museum’s premiere holiday event on Sunday, December 4th from 1:00PM – 4:00PM.  Fun for all ages is in store as live holiday music, candy canes, treats, and a visit from Santa Claus himself highlight a family friendly afternoon of Yuletide merriment.

“Many people don’t know that the museum building (9 East Sheridan Avenue, Oklahoma City) was once a candy factory that made candy canes during the holiday season,” commented museum director, Johnny Baier, adding  “To carry on our building’s proud pedigree during this festive time of year – with music and fun - seems a natural way for us to celebrate the season.”

The festivities begin when Johnny takes the stage to perform his favorite Christmas sing-alongs followed by Assistant Curator, Tyler Jackson and his wife Kristin who will play instrumental holiday classics on banjo and flute. Lucas Ross, the museum’s Outreach and Promotions coordinator will bring his special holiday banjo-blend of music and comedy, as well. In addition to the music, guests will enjoy holiday treats throughout the afternoon along with kid’s crafts where they can make their own paper banjo. The highlight of the event, of course, will be a visit from Santa Claus…bring your camera for a great photo opportunity!

Admission to A Candy Cane Christmas is free when you bring a new, unwrapped toy to support the Red Andrews Christmas Dinner. Children 15 and younger are free during the event.
