December 2022 – A Pioneer Christmas

Save the date! A Pioneer Christmas is coming December 9th, 10th and 12th, 2022 (Friday, Saturday and Monday). The gates will be open from 5:00pm-8:00pm. There’s something for everyone as you step back in time to Provo during the 1800’s.

The gates will be open from 5:00pm-8:00pm. There will be a festive program in our Carriage House with music and dancing. Program start times are 6:00pm, 6:40pm and 7:20pm. 

Arrive early and take in the other sights and sounds of the Village at Christmas. You can gather around the storytellers nestled in our cabins to hear tales of old. Then be sure to get some refreshments to enjoy as you listen to our Carolers strolling about the village or watch a craftsman demonstrate their wares. Finally, end your evening with a special visit from Father Christmas. The event is FREE. Donations appreciated. See you there!

Autumn Harvest

It was SO good to see you and to make new friends! We had storytelling in the School House, photo opps galore, costumes to try-on, an honest to goodness Apple Press, Blacksmiths and wood craftsman. There was plenty for the kiddos to do as well with candle making, cornhusk dolls, bucket building, rope making, pioneer games, handcart push and refreshments too. A special shoutout goes to Stubbs Farms who brought a trailer full of perfectly shaped pumpkins, squash & potatoes to sell! The D.U.P. even opened up their quilt vault to sell some of their wares as well. There was a true feeling of community, just like the pioneers experienced after their harvest when everyone came together in celebration of the hard work they had done. Thanks to everyone who came to our Autumn Harvest event and shared in the fun!
