Annual Holiday Open House
- Dec 2, 2017
As the holiday festivities are beginning, West Overton Village & Museum would like to invite you to our annual Holiday Open House! Please join us on Saturday, December 2, from non to 6 p.m. The Open House features free tours of the Museum and Homestead, decorated with traditional Victorian adornments, as well as some fun family-friendly activities!
Our new Christmas Market will be located in the Museum, and includes over 20 local crafters and vendors. We will also be hosting nationally renowned folk artists, Polly and Marion Mitchell, who practice the arts of Scherenschnitte Paper Cutting and Wood Bending. This is the perfect time to get some last minute gifts for your friends and family!
This year we will also be featuring the Cal U Carolers, from the choir at the California University of Pennsylvania. These carolers will bring lots of cheer to the Village as they roam from building to building! Holiday-themed crafts for children, traditional pressed cider made in our own historic kitchen, live harp music in the house and a look at Christmas traditions of the 1800s are all in store when you visit us!
To celebrate the holidays, and to help our community celebrate, West Overton Village is a Toys for Tots donation center this year. Don’t forget to bring your toy donations! We are also teaming up with one of the market vendors, Cookies & Cakes by Caroline, to donate hats, scarves, gloves and sweaters to a women’s shelter. Help us help our community and bring a donation when you visit!
