Friday & Saturday Hours

Remember that Yuletide Village has different hours than the renaissance festival. Our event runs from Nov 25 – Dec 17th, Fridays from 5 – 9 pm & Saturdays from 3 – 9 pm. Parking will be Free so you can save your money for all the delicious eats and wonderful handmade gifts throughout the park. It is important to remember that while Yuletide is a relatively new event and there for much less crowded, you may want to bring some cash with you to keep your transactions efficient.

Wintery Weather

Don’t catch a chill! Stay warm while you walk around the village.

Yuletide Village will be open rain, shine, snow, or sleet, so be sure to dress for the weather. We have several fire pits along with patio heaters in the pubs. However, this is an open-air, outdoor event and there is bound to be a nip in the air. We have several hot drink stations to help you stay toasty inside and out so take advantage of the refillable Yuletide mugs. Food service begins at 5 pm Fridays & Saturdays so pick out the meal you want and get in line early.

Handcrafted Gifts

Looking for that special gift for under the tree? Yuletide Village has plenty for you to pick from. Over 60+ vendors will be open during our event with everything you need to make someone’s holiday bright. From one-of-a-kind bespoke jewelry to classic wooden toys, blacksmith-forged home décor, and stained glass to bring color into your home. Wander our marketplace and see what catches your eye. Once you’ve gotten that gift, head on over to the Gift Wrapping Station behind the Aleing Knight Pub and make a donation to the Massie Fire Department to have it wrapped.

Special Shows

If you’re looking for entertainment as you wander through the village, we have plenty to choose from. Take your time to enjoy our talented performers as they bring holiday merriment to your visit.

Creepy Christmas

Say hello to Krampus for us.

Looking for a taste of that old-fashioned holiday horror? Brimstone Haunt brings you A Scary Little Christmas on December 3rd and 10th. Krampus will be roaming about, looking for another victim to add to his sack. Take a trip up the hill and listen for seasons’ screamings as you travel through Psychosis and the Forgotten Forest. You can even get combo tickets to enjoy the naughty and nice sides of this special event.
