Celebrate the season at the Accokeek Foundation’s annual Winter’s Eve celebration! Tour the National Colonial Farm by candlelight while it’s halls are decked for the holidays, listen to caroling around the bonfire, and roast-your-own chestnuts. Visit the crafting tent to create your own earth-friendly holiday gifts and make a wreath from greenery grown on the farm and in the gardens. Warm up with a trip to the hot-chocolate bar and spice up your cocoa with all your favorite fixings. And don’t forget to stop by the Visitor Center to shop National Colonial Farm souvenirs and one-of-a-kind gifts from local artists.
This event has free general admission, with some ticketed activities. Tickets cost $1/piece and can be purchased at the door. All proceeds from the Winter’s Eve event support the Accokeek Foundation’s conservation work and environmental education programs in Piscataway Park.
