Renfrew hosts Christmas on the Farm

WAYNESBORO—Renfrew Museum and Park will host its annual Christmas on the Farm holiday event  this weekend, Dec. 4-6.

Renfrew invites visitors to walk through more than 200 years of tradition on its historic Pennsylvania German farmstead and rediscover the simple joys of Christmas past with a safe, family-friendly experience this holiday season.

The museum will be decorated with flickering lanterns and torches and period-attired interpreters will share history at the outbuildings.

Visitors can also enjoy a cozy warming circle while waiting to take a horse-drawn wagon ride down Fahnestock Lane or enjoy a goodie or warm beverage from one of the vendors.            

The visitors center, gallery and museum shop will be open with the Christkindlmarkt for that special gift.

Christmas on the Farm will be held Friday, Dec. 4, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.; Saturday, Dec. 5 from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 6 from 1 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth ages 3 to 12, and free for children ages 2 and under.
