Museums Christmas Festival is Dec. 11

ABOYNE - Enjoy the festive season with an afternoon of Christmas cheer at the Wellington County Museum and Archives.

On Dec. 11 from 12 to 4pm the museum is hosting its annual Christmas Festival.

Entertainment, refreshments, seasonal displays, family crafts and activities will be ongoing all afternoon. Museum officials also expect a special visit from Santa Claus before the day is over.

New this year, organizers are also inviting visitors to bring from home an ornament that will decorate the tree and become part of the museum’s Christmas decoration collection.

The entertainment will feature the Not So Grand Players and a few friends from Performance Studios. In the late afternoon, stay to enjoy a “Poor House” drama, written and performed by Centre Wellington District High School students.

Tour the seasonal gallery, recreating Christmas time at the Poor House; imagine what that day would be like for the inmates who lived here.  Seasonal refreshments and traditional crafts will be available in the Nicholas Keith Room.

Special Festival Day admission is $2 per person, refreshments by donation.

The Wellington County Museum and Archives is located on Wellington Road 18, between Fergus and Elora.
