Welcome to the Home of the River City Villagers
A Department 56 Collector's Club

For the past 28 years, the River City Villagers have been meeting every other month to discuss our fondness for "those little lighted houses".  We share invitations with fellow collectors, local dealers, display experts and even representatives from Department 56, the company who manufactures and distributes our village houses and accessories.  New members are welcome.  No village is too small or too large. For those with young families, this is a great way to spend quality time together as everyone can be involved.  Please contact any of our club officers for more information or sign up under the Membership tab and to receive your "Welcome to the Club" packet.

Please note that due to the current stay-at-home directive and all restaurants being closed, our April meeting has been canceled.
