Holiday Open House
The staff of George Washington Carver National Monument invites you to attend our Holiday Open House. This annual event will take place Saturday, December 9th inside the visitor center from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. Holiday Open House is free of charge and features holiday music, refreshments, and 19th century crafts.
Local musicians Homemade Jam Dulcimers, Silver Bells sponsored by Diamond First Baptist Church, and Riverton High School Orchestra will perform their favorite arrangements. Volunteers and park staff will help visitors create orange and clove pomanders, rag dolls, nature ornaments, homemade greeting cards and more. Cookies and warm cider will add to the festive event!
Several of George Washington Carver’s hand-painted Christmas cards and letters will be on display along with remembrances of 19th century Ozark traditions and excerpts from Missouri Slave Narratives.
A special showing of the PBS feature Nature: Christmas in Yellowstone will run at noon and again at 3 p.m. Filmed in 2007, this 52-minute program features the splendor of winter in Yellowstone National Park. Stop by Holiday Open House for a few minutes or spend the entire afternoon and take away an ornament, a song, and season’s greetings from park staff!
