A Candlelight Christmas

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

Friday, November 30th - Sunday, December 2nd, we invite you to tour selected softly-lit cabins in the Museum village, 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, candle-dipping, cooking demonstrations, blacksmithing, sassafras tea-making, and lots of holiday craft activities for kids! The Museum restaurant will also be open!

This year, we've added an extra day, so it'll now be a 3-day event! We also hope to open and light more cabins.

Be sure to bring a flashlight!
