Colonial Christmas and Candlighting

Celebrate Christmas on the Carolina Frontier. Join in the “Procession of the Yule Log”, decorating with greenery, early American carols, and English country dancing beautifully set amidst the backdrop of the 18th-century Backcountry farm. At dusk, gather with our Backcountry family for the traditional Candlelighting Service. Enjoy colonial hospitality with a taste of Christmas pudding and hot gingered apple cider.

Members: Free
Non-Members: Included with museum admission.

Please note: due to the impending winter storm, Colonial Christmas will take place from 2 PM - 5 PM, with the candlelight service beginning at 4 PM.
