Burlington’s First Church of Christ hosting annual ‘An Old Kentucky Christmas’ December 7-10

First Church of Christ of Burlington is hosting its annual community event, An Old Kentucky Christmas, on the evenings of December 7th-10th.

Last year, the church welcomed over 5,000 people to this event.

Visitors will enjoy a Christmas Pioneer Village to visit the candle maker’s shop, the woodworker’s bench, Grandma’s cookies, and much more.

The whole family will experience the nostalgia of Christmas from the 1800’s.

There will be outdoor shops where children can play pioneer games, decorate their own cookies, hand-dip a candle, and make an ornament in the woodworker’s shop. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a petting zoo and a horse-drawn carriage ride.

Indoors, there will be music by a local dulcimer group, the opportunity to get a free family portrait, and special Christmas Concert Choir performances by local schools.

This free event is a perfect opportunity for the whole family to celebrate and enjoy the atmosphere together creating memories and lasting family traditions.

As part of ensuring that all families can experience An Old Kentucky Christmas the church will host a private event for special needs families in addition to our regular event times. So often special needs families don’t have the opportunity to enjoy events such as this, but on the morning of Saturday, December 9th they will have the village open just for their enjoyment.

The community is invited into the village to experience the magic of the holidays.

First Church is located on the corner of Hwy. 18 and Camp Ernst Rd. in Burlington.

This year the church will release its An Old Kentucky Christmas children’s book, Paul the Polar Bear. Guests are invited to enjoy the book and meet Paul during Story Time. The book will be available for purchase on Amazon.

The schedule is:

Thursday, December 7: 5-8 p.m. 

Friday, December 8: 5-8 p.m.

Saturday, December 9: 2-8 p.m.

Sunday, December 10: 2-8 p.m.
