Salem Saturdays will be on November 27th, December 4th, December 11th, and December 18th, from 10AM to 2PM. On those days, interpreters at the Miksch House will be demonstrating how to paint and display illuminated manuscripts while the smell of Christmas cakes flavored with cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves fills the air. At the Boys School, visitors will learn about the history of the Moravian Star, as well as how to decorate a pyramid or build a putz, while enjoying the music of the season performed by guest musicians. At the Pottery, our talented potters will be making chocolate cups on the wheel and children’s toys using molds. Throughout the beautifully decorated historic district, live music and carriage rides will also be offered on Salem Saturdays.
While you enjoy the simple, yet meaningful, Christmas traditions of 18th and 19th century Salem, North Carolina, don’t forget to shop at Old Salem’s Christmas Market at the E.A. Vogler building, and taste the Christmas season at Winkler Bakery!
From November 10th to December 23rd, the ticket prices are $20 for adults and $12 for students. We are open every Wednesday to Saturday, from 10AM to 2PM, and we will be closed on November 25th (Thanksgiving Day), and from December 24th to December 31st.
