Take a stroll down Storybook Lane

Alpenrose Dairy continues Christmas in Dairyville holiday tradition


Get your family in the holiday spirit with a stroll down Storybook Lane. Alpenrose Dairy and the Cadonau family, along with the 4-H Discovery Farm at Alpenrose open the grounds to Dairyville for this holiday tradition that has been around for decades.

Christmas in Dairyville is a winter wonderland filled with more than 300 flocked trees, live animals that make up the various scenes in Storybook Lane, modular train displays, old holiday movie screenings in the iconic Opera House, carolers and choirs singing the nostalgic sounds of the Christmas season and holiday dance performances. 

Families can stroll the vintage storefronts of Dairyville, stop by the holiday gift shop, enjoy a cup of cocoa or hot apple cider as well as treat themselves to homemade goodies from the bakery. They can also stop by and say hello to Santa and have a professional photo taken.

“We are excited to bring this holiday tradition back again this year to the community,” said Tracey Cadonau McKinnon, a fifth generation Alpenrose dairy farmer. “This is one of my favorite times of the year as you can really feel the holiday magic come to life as visitors stroll through Dairyville.”

Christmas in Dairyville is open Fridays 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Dec. 22.

Proceeds from various sales at Storybook Lane will benefit several charities throughout Oregon, including local 4-H programs.

Admission is free to Storybook Lane. It is located at 6149 S.W. Shattuck Road in Portland at Alpenrose Dairy. For more information, visit alpenrose.com.
