Thousands of Christmas lights lined the winding path through Landrum’s Homestead for the 36th Annual “Christmas at the Village” on Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1.  Visitors came from all over the state and adjacent states to enjoy an old-fashioned Christmas celebration with fun for the entire family. 

Food, beverages, and hand-made craft vendors could be found along the way.  Children and adults could have their photo made with Santa and roast marsh mellow over the fire pit. Live music entertainment at the village center stage could be heard throughout the village, as well as the folk music of the dulcimer players at the Chapel.  The Landrum’s Homestead Carolers roamed the village singing Christmas music, and Bobby Hathorn was pickin’ his banjo at the General Store.  Visitors had a chance to feed the fish at the pond, take a wagon ride through the beautiful nature trails, and watch a civil war re-enactment by the Sons of the Confederate Veterans.

On Saturday, December 14, and again on Saturday, December 21, the Homestead & Village will be opened all day beginning at 9 a.m. The lights will go on each evening for the “Christmas Candlelight Tour” at 4:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.  During the tour the Smokehouse will be selling hamburgers, hotdogs, BBQ, fries, etc. The concession stand will be selling funnel cakes and hot chocolate. It’s a magical fun for the entire family.  For more information, 601-649-2546 or
