Christmas at the Homestead at Frontier Homestead State Park in Cedar City, Utah

Christmas at the Homestead (Dec 4th – 8th)

The annual Christmas at the Homestead will be December 4 to 8 from 5:30-8pm each night. The cost is only $2 per person or $5 for the entire family, and there will definitely be something for everyone—young, old, and in between!

A weeklong holiday celebration featuring different entertainment and crafts each
evening, plus hot chocolate, treats and plenty of family fun. Twinkling holiday lights will illuminate the grounds with over a dozen hand crafted trees on display. As always, Santa and his elves will be in the Hunter House each evening ready to hear every wishlist (you can even write a Letter to Santa if you like)!

Walking through the various museum structures, visitors will get a feeling of yesteryear. Each will be decorated with a themed tree and other decorations. Ben Hohman, properties director for the Festival, has designed the lighting in the park.

Each night will include treats: popcorn and hot cider, scones and hot chocolate. Roving musicians will entertain holiday revelers as they walk among the various buildings. Each evening will also include different hands-on activities: beaded ornaments, Christmas cord, dipping candles, etc. All the museum’s regular features and exhibits will be open each night. In addition, different entertainment will be featured each evening, including music and dance at 6 and 7 each evening and Christmas story readings at 6:30 and 7:30.
