It’s a Wonderful Wake Forest

December 4 @ 10:00 am 2:00 pm

Join us at the Wake Forest Historical Museum on Saturday, December 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the inaugural “It’s a Wonderful Wake Forest” Historic Holiday Festival! 

The Calvin Jones House will be decorated for the holidays and open for tours along with the museum building and exhibit galleries. Local musicians will perform around the grounds and the Wake Forest Garden Club will be selling seasonal wreaths and arrangments. There will also be a “selfie station” so you can take a family photo against a snowy backdrop.

Guided tours of the historic district will be available by pre-registration leaving every 30 minutes between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Registration for the tours will open later this fall. 

Food and drinks will be available for purchase from the VFW and Wake Forest Women’s Club.

This special event is presented in partnership with the Town of Wake Forest, Wake Forest Historic Preservation Commission, Wake Forest Women’s Club, and Wake Forest Garden Club.
