New holiday program at Genesee Country Village

MUMFORD — Genesee Country Village & Museum is introducing a new daytime holiday program this December.

The Yuletide Open House will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 17, with eight buildings in the Historic Village open and filled with holiday activities.

Visitors are invited to enjoy a self-guided stroll through the decorated village, discovering tree-lighting traditions along with holiday music, decorations, foods and travel. There’s even an opportunity to visit with St. Nick.

The Open House comes on the final day of the traditional evening Yuletide in the Country theater program, which runs on Dec. 1 to 3, Dec. 8 to 10 and Dec. 15 to 17.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for youth aged four to 18, and free for children three and younger; and $8 for museum members. Tickets may be purchased online at www.gcv.org, or at the door.

On Dec. 17, a Yuletide buffet served by the Caledonia Village Inn — reservations required — will begin at 4 p.m. for those who want to dine after the Open House. The buffet is $30 for adults; $16 for youth aged two to 10.

The time between can be spent sitting by the fire with a glass of wine or shopping in the Flint Hill Store. Light snacks will also be available.
