December 3, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5 – $15
Join us in Piscataway Park on Saturday, December 3, from 4-8 pm for the Accokeek Foundation’s annual Winter’s Eve holiday festival. We’re lighting up the hay wagon, decking the stalls of the livestock barn, and building a bonfire you won’t want to miss!
Sing carols around the bonfire on the National Colonial Farm, explore the historic Laurel Branch farmhouse and garden by candlelight, spend some quality time with barnyard favorites like Sir Nigel the Hog Island sheep, try candle-dipping, and get some holiday shopping done in the Visitor Center gift shop.
General admission is $15 for adults and $5 for children (12 and under).
Included in general admission tickets is access to the event and hayrides, as well as hot cider to keep you warm and toasty.
Add $5 to the cost of your admission to enjoy the deluxe hot cocoa bar, where we’ll have all the fixings to help you create a hot cocoa masterpiece. The “Deluxe Cocoa Ticket” includes general admission plus your ticket to visit the hot cocoa bar.
Proceeds from this event support the Accokeek Foundation’s education programs and land conservation work in Piscataway Park.
