Christmas in the Village

This annual event is a treasure to behold. Many in the region look to this event to kick off their holiday experience. We attract 1,000+ through the campus to view the elaborately decorated Dunnell House and visit with Santa, stroll the Village, frost cookies in the General Store, purchase fancy cookies for your holiday festivities in the History Center and more.  Sponsored by Federated Insurance.
