Lebanon's Historic Brick Street District hosts a variety of events over the course of the year.  All events are free to attend.  Food and beverages are available for purchase.

The three block long brick street commercial district features over 30 businesses including restaurants and bars, antique shops, professional services, retail stores and much more.  The brick street also has it's own park known as St. Louis Street Park where you may sit and relax, take photos and just enjoy the surroundings.

On East. St. Louis Street, you'll find the 1830 Mermaid House Inn where, in 1842, famous British author Charles Dickens and a group of fourteen St. Louis leaders stayed overnight when they took Dickens to see The Looking Glass Prairie.  One of those who accompanied the thirty-year old Dickens was a thirty-year old Unitarian Minister by the name of William Greenleaf Eliot.  Eliot would later found Washington University, Mary Institute (now Mary Institute Country Day School), and the St. Louis Public School System..  Elliot didn't know it then, but he would become the grandfather of Nobel Prize for Literature recipient T.S. Eliot.

Annual Victorian Holiday Weekend

Friday, November 16, 5:00-9:00pm
Saturday, November 17, 10:00am-9:00pm
Sunday, November 18, 12:00-5:00pm

There's no place like Historic Lebanon to kick off the Holiday Season!

Friday and Saturday, beginning at 5:00pm, the store windows go dark (but the shops remain open).  Beginning at 6pm, the Old Lamplighter leads a throng of carolers dressed in Victorian Period attire from St. Louis Street Park down the sidewalks.  As the Old Lamplighter taps on the windows, they illuminate.  When he finishes both sides of the street he returns to downtown park and proclamations are made by the Mayor and other dignitaries and the switch is pulled illuminating the roof tops of all of the businesses with beautiful twinkling lights.  The 2018 Victorian Holiday Weekend is underway!

Carolers, Madrigal troupes, Father Christmas are among many of the activities found on the famous brick street where Charles Dickens walked in 1842, the year before he wrote "A Christmas Carol".  Horse drawn carriages will take you on a tour of St. Louis Street from downtown to the front of the First United Methodist Church and then returns you to downtown.

Tour the national landmark 1830 Mermaid House Inn where Charles Dickens and 14 St. Louis businessmen stayed after visiting The Looking Glass Prairie.  One of those men was William Greenleaf Eliot who went on to found Washington University in St. Louis.

All of the shops are open until 9pm on Friday and Saturday for Christmas shopping.
