Homestead Manor is kicking off the holiday season with its Holiday Village on Saturday, November 25, with a host of fun-filled activities like ornament making and photos with Santa and more. This will be the third year Homestead Manor has hosted the Holiday Village.
From 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., guests will fill The Barn on Homestead Manor’s ca. 1819 property to enjoy a market displaying homemade, home-grown items ranging from custom jewelry and wood trinkets, hand-poured candles, paintings and leather goods to natural soaps, baked goods, jams and more from local, craft vendors.
In addition to a sweeping assortment of craft vendors, festival-goers can expect $1 s’mores by the fire pit, hot cocoa bar with fireside seating, ornament making for kids, and the chance to write letters to Santa Claus. Children’s train rides will also be available for $1, courtesy of D&H Railroad.
Plus, Santa Claus himself will be onsite from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., for holiday photos with little ones and families alike. The festive keepsakes are $25 per photo.
