Homestead for the Holidays lets you experience the winter season just like the pioneers did. This family-friendly event will have you strolling through Golden History Park, taking in the colorful decorations, making a craft that you get to take home, and basking in the season. It’s time to go homestead for the holidays!
Valued volunteers make this event possible and will serve as interpreters within the historic structures to answer questions and guide your experience.
Advance registration is required.
