On the first two weekends in December, Island Farm will host Christmas on the North End – an event focused on gathering at the Farm to celebrate the holidays in 19th century tradition.

The Farm’s historic homeplace will be decorated inside and out, and interpreters will share how Roanoke Island families celebrated the Christmas holiday through traditions of food, celebration, and holiday craft. Expect to see plenty of holiday activities for younger audiences, created for them to make on the Farm and take home to enjoy.

The event takes place between 3 and 5 p.m. on Friday, December 4, Saturday, December 5, Friday, December 11 and Saturday December 12. Admission for the event is $8 for 6 and older; admission for children ages 3-5 is $4 and children ages 2 and under are free. Reservations are not required for this event. Masks are required indoors at all times, and outdoors where social distancing cannot be maintained.
