Christmas at the Homestead Thus Far

We have been celebrating the Christmas season all week at Frontier Homestead. Our partnership with the Utah Shakespeare Festival has resulted in a wonderful Christmas celebration. Remember the event continues through Saturday, 5:30-8pm each night. We wanted to share with you some of the images we have taken. We have lots more on our Facebook and Instagram pages. You can see them at the following links:

On December 4-5, The Homestead Christmas Market will fill Frontier Homestead with the sights, sounds, and smells of a frontier Christmas marketplace.  Over 20 artists and crafters have been invited to create an old-fashioned shopping experience.  In addition to the artisans in the Museum, the historic buildings will be transformed into authentic pioneer shops, full of exceptional, hand-crafted items.

Whether it’s exclusive handmade soap, a piece of whimsical or fine jewelry, a new painting or piece of art, a quilt or a toy, you will find it at the Homestead Christmas Market.  Drop by any time Friday December 4th between 11:00 am and 6:00 pm, or Saturday December 5th between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.  Entrance to the Christmas Market is $1.00/person.

Every evening the buildings will be lit up and open for exploration and Santa will be on hand each night for Christmas wishes. Bring your letters and give them to the man himself.
