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

Friday, November 30th - Sunday, December 2nd, 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, 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.

Tickets will soon be available for purchase online, and will also be available at the Museum entrance gate. 

Prices and event start and end times TBA. 

Be sure to bring a flashlight!
