Yuletide in The Country-Our Premier Holiday Event!

It's time to start thinking about your holiday plans! Join us this year for one of our merriest events of the season, our Yuletide In the Country celebration which runs Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays, December 3-5, 10-12 & 17-19. This is the event that everyone waits all year for and it usually sells out early!

The historic village will be all aglow with festively decorated homes for its traditional Yuletide in the Country the first three weekends in December.

Enjoy reenactments of Yuletides past in each building on the tour; sing along to joyful holiday songs; delight in merry instrumental music; catch the lingering aroma of wood smoke in the crisp, sparkling air; savor a refreshing drink and perhaps step to a lively tune, all the while discovering a little about the roots of our many favorite Christmas customs.

Again this year is the special historic village Gingerbread House Competition that will be on display in the Meeting Center lounge. All of the houses in the competition are modled after village buildings!

Tours last approximately 1½ hours and cost: adults $22/$18 members; youth $15/$12 members, and run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Dec. 3-5, 10-12 and 17-19.

Tour-goers will delight in a new style light buffet supper. It features festive savory dishes, plus a sumptuous spread of mouth-watering desserts, cakes and sweet delights created to satisfy the most demanding sweet tooth.

Cost for the buffet is just $15 adults/ $10 youth ages 4-10. Children 3 and under are free. Reservations required for tour. Call (585) 538-6822 or purchase tickets online!

If you are part of a large group (10 or more) please call (585) 538-6822 for a special discount.

And if you're looking for that special gift for the holidays, stop in the Genesee Country Gift Shop, open 10 a.m.- 10 p.m. each day during Yuletide.

REFUNDS: Since the severity of weather conditions varies from place to place, ticket sales are non-refundable unless the authorities close the roads or the museum cancels the program based on conditions on-site. Please check our website for severe weather updates.
