Yuletide at Storrowton

The holiday season is the best part of winter. I love the decorations, festivities and music in the air. Lucky for me, Eastern States Exposition appreciates the holidays too and is bringing Christmas cheer to the fairgrounds with a couple of special winter productions.

Perhaps you’ve heard of our upcoming event, Yuletide at Storrowton. Once a year, ESE’s historic Storrowton Village is transformed into a 19th century winter festival for the whole community to enjoy.

Through the volunteer efforts of local garden clubs and designers, the Village is completely adorned in all-natural decorations of the season. The authentic setting of the Village truly makes this a magical event, which has been drawing in crowds for over 20 years. 

During the Yuletide weekend, Dec. 7 & 8, visitors can tour the Village and experience the old-fashioned holiday fun of storytelling, ice sculpting, musical performances and early American craft demonstrations. The event is also a great way to get inspiration for your own holiday decorations. I know I’ll be taking notes!

Before you leave, stop by the Storrowton Village Gift Shop and Christmas Shop in Potter Mansion. You never know what unique holiday treasures you might find! There will also be hot beverages and delicious homemade treats available in the Holiday Sweet Shoppe.

The best part is – these weekend-long festivities are free!
If you can't make it on the weekend, Yuletide Open House Tours will be going on all week!
