Hancock Holidays are here!

We hope you’ll join us on weekends in December.

Hancock Shaker Village brings the Shaker story to life
and preserves it for future generations.

Go back in time, forward in thought. Living history museum in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

CANDLELIT EVENINGS

Experience the magic of an enchanted evening filled with New England traditions, live music, storytelling, festive foods, and caroling. Stroll the grounds. Meander into the Round Stone Barn for a visit with our calves (bring your cameras for the cutest photo opportunities). Wander into the Brick Dwelling for a holiday reading. Savor appetizers, cocktails, and punch for the kids.

HOLIDAY TEAS

Experience afternoon tea in a place that takes you back in time, decorated festively for the holidays. Tea includes sweet and savory bites (you’ll love the Shaker tea cakes). Tour the Great Kitchen in the 1830 Brick Dwelling. Meet our barn animals and enjoy live music, a craft station, and a costume corner (we’ll even take your old-timey photo).

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Walking the dog Theater’s production of a Charles Dickens classic and beloved story continues to inspire the spirit of the holiday season. Now in its 10th year, this family favorite is directed by Ted Pugh and dramatized by David Anderson with original music by Jonathan Talbott. “Amazing one-man show…what Dickens intended all along.” ~The Independent
