Feel the Holiday Spirit
Filling the heart with the joy of music, 18th-century holiday events usually centered on lively song! Fiddles, flutes, and harpsichords capture the spirit of the season today, as they did nearly 300 years ago.

Today, as in the 18th century, the holidays are the best time to celebrate with our favorite tastes. Feast on historic-inspired fare in our taverns or enjoy the lovely surroundings and contemporary menus in Traditions, the Regency Room, the Williamsburg Lodge and more.
