GCV&M - Yuletide in the Country ToursMumford, N.Y. – Visit Genesee Country Village & Museum on select Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in December for Yuletide in the Country Theatrical Tours and Buffets! Visitors will explore the wintry Historic Village by candlelight and be invited into scenes that highlight celebrations and gatherings as they would have looked throughout the 1800s.

Theatrical performances will represent the rich history and tradition that newcomers to the region would have shared throughout the 19th century. Highlights include a look at the Italian-American tradition of Festi dei Setti Pesci, a Hanukkah celebration, Watch Night festivities as presented by David Shakes and the North Star Players, and moments of fika and hygge with Swedish settlers. Visitors may even encounter the jolly old elf, St. Nick. Yuletide Yuletide Tours can be paired with a festive dinner or brunch on select dates – a GCV&M tradition featuring savory and sweet holiday dishes.
