Christmas on the Farm at Renfrew Museum & Park

Christmas on the Farm at Renfrew Museum & Park

Renfrew Museum and Park will host its annual Christmas on the Farm holiday event on December 4, 5, and 6, 2020. Renfrew invites visitors to “Walk Back in Time” through over 200 years of tradition on its historic Pennsylvania German farmstead and rediscover the simple joys of Christmas Past with a safe, family-friendly experience this holiday season!

Follow the soft glow of flickering lanterns and the fiery blaze of torches to the beautifully decorated Museum House to encounter how treasured traditions evolved over the centuries. Explore some of our historic outbuildings where period-attired interpreters will share even more holiday cheer! Enjoy a cozy warming circle while waiting to take a horse-drawn wagon ride down Fahnestock Lane or enjoy a goodie or warm beverage from one of our vendors.             Guests can also step out of the chill into the festive atmosphere inside our Visitors Center where even more family fun awaits. Peruse the gallery, then browse Renfrew’s museum shop and Christkindlmarkt for that special gift. Admission also includes live music, historically-inspired crafts, and more!

Guests are asked to please observe and respect COVID-19 safety and gathering restrictions in effect at time of event. Masks are required inside Renfrew’s buildings at all times and outdoors when a minimum distance of 6′-0″ cannot be maintained. This event will be held rain or shine, and is designed to be indoor-outdoor with limited occupancy permitted within buildings. There’s plenty of room to spread out at multiple locations on the farmstead and maintain physical distancing. Guests are encouraged to stagger their arrival and may enter at any point during the scheduled event time on their chosen date.
