Candlelight Christmas Tour

Experience the serenity of an Appalachian Christmas during our Candlelight Christmas Tour.

December 1 and 2, 2017 from 5pm-8pm, we invite you to tour selected cabins in the Museum village by candlelight, enjoy Christmas storytelling, drink hot apple cider, sing carols in the Irwin Chapel, visit with Museum animals, and make Appalachian ornaments. We'll also have a live Nativity scene, musicians performing throughout the grounds, as well as spinning & weaving demonstrations, cooking demonstrations, blacksmithing, sassafras tea-making, and lots of holiday craft activities for kids! The Museum Restaurant will also be open, and will be serving soups & sandwiches.

Be sure to bring a flashlight!
