This winter season, the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum will host the annual Homestead for the Holidays event on Thursday, Dec. 8, and Friday, Dec. 9, from 5-8:00 p.m. Admission is $8 per person for ages 3 and up.
Enjoy breakfast for supper, story time with Mrs. Claus and get your picture made with Santa and Rudolph. Take a stroll through Small Town and see various agricultural demonstrations, visit the Fortenberry-Parkman Farmstead and experience Christmas during the early 1920s.
Carousel, train rides and hayrides will be available, as well as live music throughout the grounds. Make sure to write a letter to Santa on one of our limited-edition postcards, printed in the Small-Town Print Shop, and stop by the General Store for an old-fashioned glass bottle drink while browsing the wares and unique Mississippi-made products that make great gifts and stocking stuffers.
Experience the “Tasty Side of Agriculture” with cinnamon bread, gingerbread loaf, candy-cane cookies and more, offered for sale at the old Filling Station located in Small-Town across from the General Store.
