for the Holidays
Step back into a season colored with the excitement of festivities surrounded by friends and family.
Celebrate the grand opening of Colonial Williamsburg’s newest reconstruction—James Anderson’s Public Armoury.
Feel the hope and heartbreak in this museum exhibition filled with scraps of fabric left to represent the lives of abandoned children.
In addition to our regularly scheduled ongoing events in the Revolutionary City, we invite you to join us throughout the year for various special resortwide occasions and events.
This ground-breaking exhibition will bring together paintings by artists working in the 18th-century South and others produced abroad for southern patrons.
When mothers left babies at London’s Foundling Hospital in the mid-18th century, the Hospital often retained a small token as a means of identification, usually a piece of fabric. Each scrap of material reflects the life of a single infant and that of its absent parent.
Enjoy the Revolutionary City filled with special holiday events, classic decorations, shopping, and festive dining.
For more than 70 years, Colonial Williamsburg has celebrated the holiday season by holding a Grand Illumination.
