Old Time Winter Family Day

December 17, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

December 17th will mark our Old Time Winter Family Day, with Vermilionville’s artisans on hand to demonstrate winter traditions of the Acadian, Creole and Native American cultures such as open hearth cooking demonstrations and making candles, soap, natural decorations, and citrus pomanders. Winners of our Gingerbread House Competition will be announced at noon. We will also feature a special performance by Chorale Acadienne, as well as our Santons de Provence Workshop. Children will enjoy writing letters to Papa Noël, and can even meet the French Santa Claus himself, who was actually a trapper that would deliver presents such as candy, money and small toys.

We will also have animal feed for sale, so that guests can enjoy feeding our Provence donkey and three Gulf Coast Native sheep. Vermilionville’s restaurant, La Cuisine de Maman, will also be open for regular business hours that day, offering a full menu of Cajun and Creole favorites.

Vermilionville is closed to the public on Monday, but is open Tuesday – Sunday from 10 AM – 4 PM.
