Victorian Christmas at the Silver City Museum
|Saturday, December 11, 2021, 01:00pm - 05:00pm
This year Victorian Christmas will take place largely outdoors. For this reason it has been moved to Saturday daytime event. Expanding into the courtyard will allow for a greater variety of activities, including the making of birdseed ornaments, cornhole toss, and Father Christmas giving out books. There will be heat lamps and hot mulled cider to warm the guests, cookies, ornament-making, and of course live music.
This years line-up includes a skit at 1pm by Silver City Community Theater, Twas the Night Before Christmas. At 1:30pm Bayou Seco will perform, followed by Silver City Chorale at 2:30pm, Joe Neri at 3:15pm, and closing out with a bilingual reading at 4pm with Wendy Spurgeon and Raul Turrieta – who is also the event’s MC.
This year we are excited to introduce La Bonita Bakery as a vendor of tamales and other savory snacks!
Victorian Christmas 2021 will also feature the popular puppet show and gift exchange introduced just before COVID. Indoors will be more ornament-making and trees to decorate in the Dodge Gallery, as well as Ebenezer’s Exchange in the hall. To participate, please bring a wrapped gift of no more than $10 value.
Masks will be required including outdoors (except when eating and drinking), and capacity inside the building will be limited to 50. Victorian dress is always encouraged, but remember to dress warmly and be prepared to be outdoors. The event will culminate with the lighting of our famously festive outdoor decorations when the sun goes down.
