Candlelight Evening at the Farmers’ Museum
Visit The Farmers’ Museum for one of the region’s best-loved holiday traditions.
The landscape of the museum is adorned with greenery and aglow with hundreds of candle luminaries. Real jingle bells add to the magic of the evening as horses dressed in harness bells pull wagons carrying visitors through the museum’s snowy grounds. Gather around a bonfire on the tavern green and partake of complimentary wassail made with local cider–warming in kettles over open fires and served throughout the event. Delicious food and hot drinks are also available.
Candlelight Evening is unforgettable for children. Saint Nicholas reads Twas The Night Before Christmas in the More House and all visitors enjoy free rides on the Empire State Carousel, courtesy of Matthew Sohns and family.
Music and live performances bring Candlelight Evening to life. Hear the sounds of the holidays throughout the museum’s grounds. Performers fill the historic Cornwallville Church with music of the season. Local high school bands play holiday favorites at Bump Tavern. Mingle with characters from the museum’s upcoming production of A Christmas Carol. Best of all, visitors can join in the singing with over 150 carolers in the midst of our candle-lit historic buildings.
