Williamsburg Events Throughout the Seasons

A visit with us any time of the year is sure to provide you with some wonderful events to attend at Colonial Williamsburg (as well as the surrounding area).

For example, book a visit at the Alice Person House around the Fourth of July and be prepared to be awestruck by the activities Colonial Williamsburg puts on for Independence Day.

You can hear a reading of the Declaration of Independence just as U.S. citizens did back in 1776. Colonial Williamsburg's Fifes and Drums will perform followed by some of the best fireworks displays in the country.

Everyone should see Christmas in Colonial Williamsburg at least once. Begun with a "Grand Illumination" of lighting hundreds of candles -- just as colonists did -- followed by music and fireworks, spending some days of the holiday season in Williamsburg can truly put you and your family members in the holiday spirit. Christmas in Williamsburg offers you the chance to see and do many things just as the colonists did. Learn how to cook delicious dishes and pastries with Colonial Williamsburg's pastry and culinary chefs. Enjoy special music concerts performed by musicians using replicas of 18th Century instruments. Take classes in traditional Christmas decoration -- and then take what you learn home and decorate your place with a Colonial motif.

Other Colonial Williamsburg events held at various times of the year include reenactments, such as a time when Williamsburg was invaded by British soldiers. You can interact with townspeople as they learn how to cope with British-imposed martial law. You can see drills and exercises, artillery demonstrations and even walk among doctors and wounded in a military field hospital.

Or enjoy the fruits of a Revolutionary War victory with a reenactment of an army's preparation to lay siege to Yorktown. Again, you can join townspeople and offer your own encouragement to General George Washington's army.

There are plenty of other events in Williamsburg throughout the year. College football fans will want to secure tickets to the College of William and Mary's football team's fall home games.

Summer is for Shakespeare, and the college delivers the Bard up in a big way with its annual Virginia Shakespeare Festival during the summer.

Williamsburg's Historic Garden Week is more than just pretty flowers -- it's the oldest and largest house and garden tour/event in the country! Held in April each year, Garden Week offers visitors the chance to tour hundreds of Virginia's most beautiful historic landmarks, gardens and homes. Some call it "America's Largest Open House" and this is one invitation home and garden lovers won't want to miss.

We doubt you'll ever run out of things to do in Williamsburg when you stay with us at Alice Person's House, but in case you do, let us know and we'll be happy to suggest several great activities.
