Christmas in the Colonies

November 26 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

| $12.00
Christmas

Christmas in the colonies was celebrated differently, and sometimes not at all, by each ethnic group who settled here, bringing traditions from their homeland. Graeme Park was home to the Scottish Keith and Graeme families, Irish and German servants, enslaved workers, and later the Quaker Penroses. As you tour the rooms of the Keith House, costumed actors will present these different traditions to you – some you will recognize in our modern day celebrations or maybe you’ll discover something new to incorporate into your own traditions. Part of the tour will also feature the Tapestry Historic Dance Ensemble performing traditional parlor dances, Noah Lewis playing Ned Hector and telling you about the life of a free black soldier, and Santa will be on the grounds for selfies with the kids. Cookies, hot chocolate, and adult libations will be available.

Tours are on Saturday, November 26 at 3:30, 4:00, 4:30, and 5:00 and are $12 for 13+ and $8 for 6-12 year-olds and members of the Friends of Graeme Park. Tickets are available in the visitors’ center the day of the event.
