Visitors to Old Sturbridge Village will be treated to a festive story experience in which residents of a 19th century New England town prepare for a seasonal celebration ‚Ä" a winter ball, filled with ‚Äúwarmth and cheer!‚ÄĚ¬† Each trade shop, home, and business on the Village Common will be brought to life by costumed historians as they talk about how 19th- century folks would have prepared for such a lively event.¬† While such occasions were relatively rare, rural balls most typically took place in winter when there was less pressing work on the farm.¬† Visitors will gain insight into how people in early New England planned for an evening of dancing, socializing, and fun.
No detail will be overlooked as visitors watch a printer prepare invitations to the ball, play games, learn about the latest fashions, listen to 19th-century music, and enjoy popular libations of the time.¬† Guests will also learn about early hairstyles and cooking for company on an open hearth.
Times:¬†The Village will be open 9:30 am to 4:00 pm
Cost:¬†Included with standard daytime admission or Village membership. SAVE $2.50 per Adult, Senior, or Youth standard daytime admission ticket by purchasing your tickets online instead of at the door! Cannot be combined with other discounts.
