Experience the Wonder of Victorian Christmas in Bellefonte

This three-day event usually takes place in mid-December. Visitors from all over the state come for the wholesome, old-fashioned holiday fun. The Opening Ceremonies kick off the weekend in front of the Courthouse on Friday. Be greeted on the front steps by Dickens & Company and serenaded by the Bellefonte Community Band from the balcony of the Brockerhoff House. Enjoy entertainment by Elementary Grade School Choirs, St. John’s Elementary School Choir, and other special performances. Enjoy a Hot Chocolate and Cookie reception after the ceremony (place to be determined and announced at the ceremony). One of the highlights of the weekend is the Santa Express train rides. Tickets for the train rides sell out fast, so if you’re interested, go to their website to purchase in advance.

There is always a complete listing of events. Each year the Reynolds Mansion houses some of the Dickens Carolers in support of the event. Over the past nine years, the Reynolds Mansion participated in the Homes’ Tour and hosted Victorian High Teas for ninety-plus people per year. Additionally, Tricia volunteers to conduct the Bellefonte Victorian Christmas Choir. Tricia and Mike believe in community service and feel that this is one of the year’s highlights. You can see Tricia conduct the choir (and Mike sing).
