This year, we are excited to bring you two weekends of Holiday Market

Saturday and Sunday, November 28-29 & December 5-6

After seven weeks of successful social distancing at Harvest Festival, we know that an event is only as good and safe as the people who attend.  Thank you for keeping this event enjoyable for guests, volunteers, and staff alike. With this in mind, we will be adopting some of our Harvest Festival protocol for Holiday Market. Please see the information below to best prepare for your visit.

+ 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM: Market open with socially-distant, local shopping.

+ 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM: Photos with Santa on the Museum Patio (Saturday only)

+ 2:00 PM: Live, outdoor caroling with Sullivan County Dramatic Workshop.

Please be aware that lines close at 1:30 PM. Masks will be required for this experience by both Santa and guests. Guests will be positioned in front of a large-scale photo frame with Santa behind it, assuring distance between parties. A Bethel Woods staff member will be on-site to take the photo for the whole family.
