The Village paths come alive with the sounds and smells of the holidays at this FREE FAMILY EVENT!

Select buildings will be open where guests can enjoy hands-on crafts, live music, hot beverages and holiday treats served by historical interpreters in period clothing. Visitors can meet Father Christmas in the Country Store and enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride throughout the festively decorated Village grounds for a small donation.

The Country Store will be open and stocked with unique holiday gift ideas including traditionally-processed wool, artisan crafts for the home, books, jewelry, toys and old-fashioned candy.

Historic Cold Spring Village is a non-profit, open-air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American era. Its mission includes the preservation of 27 historic Cape May County buildings, history education and promoting heritage tourism. The Village is a museum for all seasons. During the summer months, historically clothed interpreters and artisans preserve the trades, crafts, and heritage of “the age of homespun.”

From October to May, the emphasis is on teaching history through school trips to the Village, classroom visits by the education department and interactive teleconferences with schools throughout the United States.
