Tis the Season of Mirth

Friday, December 14, 2018

In honor of approaching Christmastide, special presentations will take place at the Nelson House and along Main Street. Enjoy the festive ambiance that is Yorktown!

In 18th-century Virginia, Christmas was not just one day, but twelve. Virginians reveled in a festive season of feasting, balls, fox hunts, and other fine entertainments. Friends and neighbors are invited to gather at the Nelson House for dancing, singing, and general merrymaking in honor of the approaching Christmastide! Admission is free.

Also along Main Street, enjoy festive seasonal tunes with the Yorktown Fifes and Drums, explore the Custom House's antique ornament display, and join the Grace Episcopal Church choir for caroling in the church's sanctuary.
