Genesee Country Village & Museum invites you to experience our Holiday Open House event. Come celebrate the traditions of the season with us and explore the winter wonders of the historic village.

Bring your family for self-guided tours through our historic homes that are warmed by fires and alive with holiday lights, candles, and traditional decorations. Experience music, sample foods, and enjoy a visit with St. Nick. Eight houses will be open to explore.

Smell the aroma of fresh-baked Christmas cookies and taste special holiday treats — light fare, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase in the Banquet Center. You may also find that special holiday gift at the Flint Hill Store (open all day).

Add on a delicious Yuletide buffet, catered by the Caledonia Village Inn. Purchase dinner tickets here. The first dinner seating is at 4:00pm. In the hour between the open house ends and dinner begins, relax in our Banquet Center! Cozy up by the fire, take a break with a glass of wine or pint of ale, and enjoy relaxing conversation with friends.

Don't miss this magical event!
