Christmas Candlelightings in Historic Roscoe Village

Guests visiting Roscoe Village for the Christmas Candlelightings on December 7th, 14th and 21st will have the opportunity to experience a truly old-fashioned Christmas. A variety of family fun activities will be offered through-out the day -- horse-drawn carriage rides, roasted chestnuts, strolling carolers, complimentary hot-mulled cider, cookies, a Christmas tour, luminaries, and visits with Santa. Activities may vary for each Christmas Candlelighting.

At candlelightings each year, visitors are provided a candle upon arrival at the ceremony and surround the main stage in the center of the village to listen to guest choirs sing carols, hear a Christmas story, and participate in the lighting of their candle. When it comes time to light the candles, the Honorary Candlelighter lights his or her candle from the main candle on stage then passes the flame through the crowd as each guest joins in the singing of "Silent Night" until everyone's candle is glowing. The candlelighting ceremonies begin at 6:00pm and are free to the public. Parking is also free.

Roscoe Village will offer "A Roscoe Christmas" tour during each Candlelighting. Christmas cards, toys, treats, "visions of sugarplums" and letter to Santa -- learn how these holiday traditions were practiced in the 1800s. Times for the tours are 12:30pm, 1:30pm and 3:00pm. Following the Christmas Candlelighting Ceremony is a special candlelit tour at 7:00pm. Reservations for the evening tour must be made in advance by calling the Roscoe Village Visitor Center at 740-622-7644 ext. 12. Many have made this wonderful event a holiday tradition. The Roscoe Christmas tour will also be offered on the Sundays following each Candlelighting at 11:00am and 2:00pm.

For more information on Christmas Candlelightings, please call 740-622-7644 or 800-877-1830 or visit www.roscoevillage.com. The Village is located at 600 North Whitewoman Street on State Routes 16 and 83 near the junction of US Route 36 in east-central Ohio.
