Event Details

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 11, 2021 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.

Cracker Country’s General Store features nostalgic and reproduction items, historical toys and games, books, candy and many other unique gift items that are great for holiday giving! Proceeds from sales in the General Store help support Cracker Country’s educational programs.

Enjoy bluegrass music performed on onstage throughout the day.
