We’ll provide the materials needed to make your very own tree ornament, plus plenty of historic ornaments on display for inspiration. When done, kids can take their crafts home, and admire them throughout the holiday season.

American Girl Tea with Samantha Parkington

Join us for an elegant holiday tea party! Our Festival of Trees will be in full swing, making a glittering holiday backdrop for the occasion. We’ll have baked goods and stories to share, and make a wintery craft to take home. Our host will be Samantha Parkington, who grew up during the Victorian era.

A Very Mabee Christmas
Thursday, December 27 – 12pm @ Mabee Farm • $8
Zalig Kerstmas! This program welcomes all families to share in Dutch holiday traditions. Our historic house will be warm, cozy and decked for the season. With riddles and clues to guide them, kids will hunt for small gifts to take home. Of course, we’ll enjoy some Dutch sweets.
