On Friday, Dec. 10, and Saturday, Dec. 11, the Museum of Appalachia will host its 6th annual Candlelight Christmas event — a winter celebration that captures the beauty and simplicity of an Appalachian Christmas. The event will begin each evening from 4 to 9 p.m., according to a news release.
The centerpiece of this holiday event is an evening tour of the Museum’s pioneer village. Old-fashioned Christmas decorations will adorn the interiors of the Museum’s authentic log cabins — many of which will be festively lit for the occasion.
Candlelight Christmas will also feature a live Nativity scene, traditional musicians performing throughout the grounds, local artisans and craftspeople, and a variety of family-friendly activities, including wagon rides, visits with farm animals, popcorn stringing, Christmas storytelling, and more, according to a release.
Kids can make ornaments and decorate cookies at the Children’s Craft Station. Blacksmiths, spinners, weavers, and other demonstrators will be on-site for historic demonstrations.
