Step back in time at Fairfields Heritage House at this adult only program exploring Victorian Christmas traditions. Enjoy traditional food and drink, performances by the Dickens Carolers, and get creative with a seasonal craft. Did you know that the social and cultural impact of the Victorian era can still be seen in the ways many of us celebrate the season?

Discover the origins of familiar holiday practices from Christmas trees to mincemeat pies – and even where the practice of adding expensive liquors to eggnog came from. Our striking nineteenth century Gothic Revival farmhouse is the perfect setting for making cherished memories with family and friends.
