The Museum of Appalachia will host its sixth annual Candlelight Christmas event—a winter celebration that captures the beauty and simplicity of an Appalachian Christmas. The event will be on Friday, Dec. 10 and Saturday, Dec. 11, begin each evening at 4 p.m. and end at 9 p.m.
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.
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.
