Join the staff of Historic Washington State Park for its 31st Annual Christmas and Candlelight which will be held December 2 and 9, 2017.

The park will be open from 8AM to 8PM both days, but to enjoy the thousands of luminaries and special music you may want to wait until later in the afternoon to pay a visit. Tour locations and homes will be adorned in 19th century style decorations including natural handmade wreaths and swags tailored by park staff and volunteers the week of the event. Evening programming and tours begin at 1PM., lighting of the luminaries will take place at dark, and music from groups and choirs throughout the region will begin at 5PM.

William’s Tavern Restaurant will serve a Christmas Buffet for both lunch and dinner so you don’t have to miss out on that tasty tradition no matter what time you arrive for the event. Whether you choose to stroll the boardwalks or take a ride on the horse drawn surrey, you don’t want to miss bringing in the Christmas Season the old fashion way at Historic Washington State Park. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for children (6 -12) plus tax.
