Register to win a family four pack of tickets to Quiet Valley Living Historial Farm’s Old Time Christmas.

Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm will present its 30th annual Old Time Christmas event on December 5, 6 and December 12, 13 with candlelit tours leaving approximately every 15 minutes beginning at 3:00 p.m., with the last group going out at 7:00 p.m.  

More than any other holiday, Christmas celebrations center on the traditions of our families and our heritage.  Begin a new tradition with your family this year during an outing to Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm, where the Christmas customs of the past are brought to life. From the softly glowing lantern light and luminaries to complimentary hot chocolate and cookies, Old Time Christmas is sure to become a favorite holiday pastime for many years to come.  

Gather around a bonfire while you wait for your visit to the 1800s to begin. Guides in period clothing will lead guests on their journey into the past beginning with a glimpse at a Victorian era Christmas and their Christmas Putz, a homemade nativity and village scene. 

The living Nativity, located in the barnyard, includes the Quiet Valley farm animals and offers a look at the foundation of this special celebration and includes a soloist and scripture readings. Experience a rustic Christmas of the early 1800s in the upper barn. At the one room schoolhouse the school marm leads both the musicians and guests in singing their favorite seasonal carols. There is plenty of nervous excitement as folks await a visit from the Belschnikel, a traditional Pennsylvania German character who made his rounds during the Christmas season. He is the one who really knows if you were naughty or nice.

New this year, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Old Time Christmas, is a Christmas Tree Forest where trees sponsored by families and business will be on display. We are asking our visitors to vote for their favorite decorated tree. 

Complimentary refreshments add a festive touch to the visit. Before you leave be sure to stop in the Holiday Gift Shop which is stocked with heritage crafts handmade by Quiet Valley artisans. It is the place to find unique gifts at reasonable prices.

Those looking for a truly meaningful way to start their Christmas season will discover it at this very special event.
Adjusts will be made to keep this event appropriately social-distanced. MASKS ARE REQUIRED.
All funds raised support the mission of the non-profit farm museum.
