Holiday Events in Colonial Williamsburg

Here’s what’s happening soon. Don’t miss these unique holiday events in Colonial Williamsburg!

Carriage Rides

Throughout the year, guests of Colonial Williamsburg love to take horse-drawn carriage rides around the Historic Area. This tradition becomes even more special when you’re surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of the holiday season. 


Romantic Wythe

$55.00 for 2 passengers, or $40.00 for admission ticket or passholders

Red Carriage
$65.00 for up to 4 passengers, or $50.00 for admission ticket or passholders

Madison Carriage

$65.00 for up to 4 passengers, or $50.00 for admission ticket or passholders

Stage Wagon

$65.00 for up to 4 passengers, or $50.00 for admission ticket or passholders

Carriage and wagon rides operate daily weather permitting, and are sold by the whole carriage in order to maintain social distancing. Purchase tickets at the Lumber House Ticket Office (on Duke of Gloucester Street across from Palace Green) on the day of use. Make your reservation as early in the day as possible—rides sell out quickly! Guests with a current admission ticket or annual pass receive a $15 discount on carriage rides.* 

Super Happy Fishmastide

Come celebrate Fishmastide with the Jug Broke Theatre Company as performers sing about the magical beast who was said to save good souls lost at sea and return them home to their families in Virginia on Christmas Day.

The Charlton Stage

The Charlton Stage, located between E. Duke of Gloucester Street and E. Nicholas street, will offer a variety of museum theatre experiences that highlight songs and traditions of the winter season!

Dominion Energy Presents Liberty Ice Pavilion 

After a long and difficult year, treat your family to an experience enjoyed by people for centuries—ice skating! This family-friendly activity is a perfect addition to the holiday season. After your adventure, enjoy refreshments available for purchase like cider and hot coffee, and don’t forget all the wonderful restaurants just steps away from the rink. 

Liberty Ice Pavilion is open daily on historic Duke of Gloucester Street from November 20, 2020 through February 15, 2021, including holidays! 

Fiddling Away the Holidays

Immerse yourself in the Christmas tradition of storytelling with Master fiddler and award-winning performer John Turner. Share an entertaining hour of traditional and holiday music played on a variety of instruments, from fiddle to redpipes, toys, and bird whistles. Don’t miss this year’s special version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas.”
