A Farmer’s Christmas
December 1, 2018
1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday at the Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village December 1, 2018 from 1 to 5 p.m. The Museum and Village is transformed through the hard work of our volunteers into a Christmas wonderland. In the main building, young visitors can try their hand at a variety of holiday crafts such as paper quilling, bead wreaths and yarn dolls, or they can visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Young and old can enjoy sipping hot mulled cider while listening to a variety of holiday musical performances or observing the many artisans demonstrating their crafts. After enjoying all of the activities inside the Museum, visitors can take a stroll down the “Avenue of Trees” (consisting of over 40 decorated trees) and step back in time as they step outside and enter our authentic 1890’s village. In the Village they will hear carolers singing traditional Christmas music; see a live nativity scene at the church; enjoy the aroma of cookies baking in the farmhouse wood-stove oven; watch a blacksmith hard at work in the blacksmith shop and be captivated by ghost stories being told at the train station. Great fun for all ages. Museum members admitted free; nonmembers pay regular museum admission ($3 to $7)
