Holiday Wassail Open House
You’re invited to the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts for the second annual tree lighting ceremony, which will officially kick off the Trees of Historic Bethlehem exhibit! Immediately following the City of Bethlehem tree lighting ceremony, follow the jingling bells rung by Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites’ Docents up New Street to the Kemerer Museum and join in the wassailing merriment.
Hear some of Bethlehem’s storied past from costumed docents stationed throughout the Kemerer Museum, including Annie Kemerer, founder of the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts.
Lend an ear to festive holiday tunes to get in the holiday spirit, and enjoy mulled cider, hot chocolate, and light refreshments at this family-friendly event.
Doors open at 5 p.m. as well as the galleries for self-guided tours. The official welcome and tree lighting will take place at 5:30. A suggested donation of $3 is welcome for admission.
