Old Fashion Christmas Market

Immerse yourself in an old fashion German Christmas market. Visit with Santa in a turn of the century carriage. Make rag dolls and corn husk dolls for Christmas gifts. Help us decorate our tree by stinging popcorn and making paper chains. Visit our two-room school house for a quick lesson before you run off to explore the houses of our residents. Here you will get to interact with the people, animals, objects and routines of life in Big Cypress in the early 1900’s. You’ll learn new skills as you mingle among the families and they might even tell you stories and share some local gossip. Come prepared to learn and play at Wunderlich Farm’s Old Fashion Christmas Market.
