Come experience the history of Christmas traditions at Old Sturbridge Village. Our programs are designed with your safety in mind – featuring a vast array of outdoor festivities. Relish old traditions and create new ones as we highlight homemade Christmas decor. See demonstrations of classic Christmas projects like knitting stockings, wreath making, and making natural ornaments. Watch as we make a traditional Christmas meal, punch tin lanterns, make ice skates or a sled, and other special projects. You’ll enjoy strolling from the Common to the Countryside as you enjoy our festive, outdoor decorations, Christmas Tree Trail, and Christmas Wish Bridge. And Christmas by Candlelight wouldn’t be complete without a horse-drawn carryall ride and warming up by the bonfires. We hope your family will join ours, as we celebrate a very special Christmas.
