Bedford Village’s Old Fashioned Christmas Evenings is a wonderful time. The village is a living museum, and the original buildings and knowledgeable volunteers make the experience truly memorable. What is best about this old fashioned Christmas is the ease of pace and no-stress atmosphere. Break away from the hassle of shopping and parties and immerse yourself in the splendor of an eighteenth-century frontier Christmas.
Old Fashioned Christmas Evenings are great for history enthusiasts and romantics alike. Minstrels and craftsmen stroll the streets and haunt the homes and workshops of the old village. Knowledgeable volunteers play the parts of village dwellers and interact with visitors and answer any questions you might have. Guides are excited to answer questions and volunteers are eager to show visitors the products and techniques of living Christmas on the Pennsylvania frontier.
All the buildings are soft with the glow of candle light and the fireplaces are hot. Step in to any of the homes or tiny shops and rejuvenate your Christmas morale with fresh smells and friendly smiles. At the village tavern, old recipes become new favorites. Gingerbread and snicker doodles fresh from the towns bakery is sure to please and hot cider will warm the most tired and cold souls.
