For two weekends in December, visitors at Heritage Farm Museum and Village can experience an Appalachian Christmas. The December Way Back Weekend has been “transformed by Christmas spirit,” according to a press release.

The Christmas Village will feature a display of lights on the 19th century pioneer village, live Christmas entertainment, an artisan gift market, and Santa Claus. December 2, 3, 9 and 10, admission is $5 for all ages to enter the Smithsonian Affiliate attraction.

“We really wanted to make this a magical and safe Christmas experience,” said Audy Perry, Executive Director of Heritage Farm. “We are always excited to come experience the hope and renewal of Appalachia through a lens of the past.”

Perry said the artisan café, Rory Lee’s Bread Oven and Village Vittles will be open “to satisfy those holiday cravings.” There will also be a fire to roast s’mores.

Heritage Farm will also open three of their seven museums in the evening, and kids can write letters to Santa inside the School Museum.

An annual Saturday pass is also available, giving entry every Saturday including Way Back Weekends.
