The Christmas Truce

Experience a WWI Christmas Story!

In 1914, a brief, unofficial truce took place along parts of the Western Front, as soldiers on opposing sides marked the season together.

During this event small groups will be led through the Heritage Village, where they will learn about life during the war and will experience the unique story of the Christmas Truce at our replica WWI trench.

Presented in Partnership with History Matters Association

Tickets are $15 per person (plus fees)

Event Details and Reminders:

We are excited to bring this experience back to the Village!

Groups will be led through 4 buildings where presenters will share WWI history and stories. Groups will then finish at our WWI replica Trench.

This event will traverse uneven gravel pathways.

Tickets will be sold for designated arrival times.

Length: Approximately 2 hours once taken inside the Heritage Village.

This event takes place after dark on Friday and Saturday evening.

New this year we have added late afternoon time slots before sunset. Limited spots are available.
