Christmas in the Country

How did rural Americans celebrate Christmas before malls, e-cards and twinkly electric lights? Experience a 19th century Florida Christmas in the Country at Mildred W. and Doyle E. Carlton, Jr. Cracker Country at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Christmas in the Country will take place Saturday, December 12, 2020 from 10:00am – 4:00pm. Cracker Country is a living history museum that represents aspects of home life, commerce and transportation as it was in many rural Florida communities just before the turn of the 20th century. During Christmas in the Country, guests can stroll through the four-acre complex and experience seasonal décor, music and traditions in 13 original buildings, including a train depot, historic homes, general store, post office, blacksmith shop and more. Along the way, guests can create holiday keepsakes like salt dough ornaments and take part in traditional games and activities. Adults 12 and up: $12; Seniors: $10; Students ages 6-11: $10, Kids ages 0-5: FREE.
