Tour Notes

The Valley Junction district has been part of Des Moines' holiday tradition for decades. Our special holiday tour shares the stories, sights and sounds of The Old Market past and present. The entire district will be lit up with twinkling lights and full of beautiful store windows. Our friendly host will take you to the special sweet shops, gift shops and holiday sites.


Your tour will start with a glass of bubbly then include a small bite at a landmark restaurant, sweet samples and a special cocktail from a beautiful cocktail lounge. Support local as you experience a classic Christmas tradition in the city.​
