Homesteaders

Homesteader’s Holiday returns to Centennial Village Museum for a cozy holiday celebration set in the village’s festively decorated historical homes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3 at 1475 A Street.

Tickets are $4 per person, and children two and under attend for free. Youth 12 and under attend free with a canned food donation to Weld County Food Bank.

Candle Dipping, Cowboy Santa, and Christmas Shopping

Take part in some festive take-home historical crafts, including the unique art of candle dipping and Victorian paper ornaments. Tour the village’s town square and historical homes while listening to live entertainment, ranging from Christmas carols performed by the Grace Church Choir to bluegrass and Americana from Northern Colorado band, Rusty 44.

This year also marks the return of Cowboy Santa to Centennial Village Museum, available to talk with kids young and old about the upcoming holiday season.

Don’t forget to stop by Selma’s Store for stocking stuffers and other unique gifts. The store will be staffed throughout the Homesteader’s Holiday event.

Centennial Village Museum reopens for regular seasonal hours in May 2023.

Opened in 1976, Centennial Village Museum is a living history experience that features more than 35 historical buildings, costumed interpreters, heritage farm animals, and 8-acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. As a City of Greeley Museums site, Centennial Village Museum preserves and interprets American western heritage in the Colorado high plains region, housing some of Weld County’s oldest structures and hosting several annual special events.
