Fanshawe Pioneer Village Christmas Events
A Visit With St. Nicholas
Families are invited to a Visit with St. Nicholas. Enjoy a hot pancake breakfast, followed by a baked gingerbread man to decorate for dessert. Hop aboard a horse drawn wagon for a beautiful winter ride around Fanshawe Pioneer Village and visit a selection of buildings preparing for Christmas. Of course the day wouldn’t be complete without the visit with St. Nicholas himself, who is happy to see each child.
Enjoy a traditional 19th century country Christmas dinner served family style and featuring local roast goose, root vegetables, soup, cabbage salad, pickles and for dessert; mincemeat pie or plum pudding. After dinner, entertainment is a lively play adapted by a local playwright from one of Charles Dickens’ and his contemporaries’ Christmas stories.
