The Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village is transformed into a vintage holiday wonderland as we proudly present: 'A Farmer's Christmas'.
Visitors of all ages will enjoy the all sights, sounds and scents of the holiday season. New to the event this year are fresh wreaths for sale and fire drums for roasting marshmallows!!
In our main museum, young visitors can try their hand at a variety of holiday crafts such as paper quilling, bead wreaths and yarn dolls. Everyone will enjoy sipping hot mulled cider while listening to a variety of holiday musical performances and observing artisans demonstrating their crafts. Take a stroll down the “Avenue of Trees” and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Step back in time as you enter our 1890’s village and experience the holidays in a Victorian era rural setting where carolers sing traditional Christmas music and the aroma of fresh baked cookies streams from the farmhouse kitchen. Watch a blacksmith making tools in the blacksmith shop. And, last but not least! Send a letter to Santa via telegraph in the train station!
