November 2022 – Opening Day for the Prairie Pines Old Fashioned Christmas experience is the day after Thanksgiving, November 25th, 2022. For 40 years, Prairie Pines has been Wichita’s destination for family fun and holiday traditions. Located at 4055 N. Tyler Road in Maize, KS, Prairie Pines is a Christmas Tree Farm where families can choose-and-cut or select pre-cut Christmas trees. 

Prairie Pines Santa

Santa – During the holidays, their Christmas Tree Farm turns into an “Old Fashioned Christmas” with hot chocolate and cookies, Santa Claus with a beautiful backdrop of flocked trees and an old fashioned sleigh, horse-drawn hay rack rides, and family “train” rides.

Hot Cocoa and Holiday Treats – The choral music department from Maize High School sells special treats in our concession building. 

Horse-Drawn Wagon Rides – Hop on and enjoy a Horse-drawn and tractor-drawn hay-rack to head to the field to choose a tree. The horses come in from Kingman and are available on select weekend hours. Tractor-drawn hay-racks are always available.

Train Rides – There is a children’s train pulled by a small tractor, operated on select weekend hours. There is no charge to ride the train.

Old Barn Christmas Shop – Every year the rustic log cabin is turned into a festive, beautiful old fashioned Christmas wonderland. There are trees with thousands of ornaments for purchase, and you can have a custom wreath decorated while you shop. 

New for 2022 – Enjoy the fun backdrops for group photos, family photos and Santa photos. And there is a professional camera set up for these special photos. It is free to get a photo taken and optional to get your photos printed or downloaded.
