Christmas at Canterbury, held annually, allows visitors to experience the delights of Christmas in a simpler era by taking a candlelight stroll through the Village, watching an old-time magic show, riding in a horse drawn wagon, and watching a silent film with live organ accompaniment by Peter Krasinski. The event will also include music performances, storytelling, craft demonstrations and activities, cookie decorating, hot chocolate and cider, chats with Village characters like Dr. Seth Miller, 19th century physician and more. Attendees have the option of having dinner at The Shaker Table, where reservations are required, or enjoying lighter fare at the Shaker Box Lunch & Farm Stand.

Christmas at Canterbury is sponsored by Merrimack County Savings Bank, Lincoln Financial Group, Nathan Wechsler, The Rowley Group and Bank of New Hampshire.

Canterbury Shaker Village is a place where the ideals of simplicity, reflection and renewal are present year round,” noted Funi Burdick, Executive Director. “Yet, it’s at Christmas that our ongoing practice of rethinking Shaker traditions seems especially relevant. Christmas at Canterbury is a chance to experience the holiday in a way that gets away from the commercialism so prevalent today.”  

The Shaker Gift Shop, which features a wide selection of high quality, Shaker inspired products, will be open for Holiday shopping during Christmas at Canterbury
