Celebrate our region’s history as an early center for iron making at this festival featuring blacksmithing demonstrations; hands-on casting and molding demonstrations by experts from Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site; guided tours of the historic village by costumed interpreters; a beer and wine garden; plein air artists; delicious historic foods; a wide variety of iron and metalwork arts, crafts, and jewelry; live period music; whimsical cannonball tosses and anvil-lifting contests; children’s activities; make it/take it opportunities, and more!  Partner events in surrounding parks and towns—including exhibits at the Museum of the Ironworker, educational speakers at the Thurmont Public Library, guided tours of the charcoal trail in nearby Catoctin Mountain National Park, and a commemoration of the role of Africans in ironmaking at Catoctin.

The Dark Side of Christmas will feature Folklore, Legends, Tales and History surrounding The Villains of the Season. From Krampus to Belsnickel with a variety of others. Join a Ghostly Images Guide in the darkened assembly room to the rear of the Haunted Orphanage for “Haunted” Christmas stories that were brought to America from Germany, England, Italy, Austria and all across Europe centuries ago.

A Christmas Experience that you will never forget!

Thanksgiving evening is the beginning of the Christmas holiday season at the Shriver House Museum. The Shriver family moved into their new home just before the Christmas of 1860. In anticipation of showing off their beautiful new home to family and friends, their house is fully decorated for a mid-19th century Christmas gathering.

Come hear how very different each of the five Christmases they spent in their home were affected by the Civil War. One of the wealthiest families in Gettysburg at the time, the first holiday George and Hettie, along with their two daughters, Sadie (5) and Mollie (3), celebrated in their new home was one full of joy and delight. Just four months later the Civil War began. The country was in turmoil and George Shriver was fighting with Cole’s Cavalry which made it a challenge for Hettie Shriver to celebrate the following holidays with her girls while their father was away.

The 4’ tall candle-laden Christmas tree sits in the middle of the handsome parlor decorated with holiday greenery. After hanging their stockings on the mantle, Sadie and Mollie set out springerle cookies in anticipation of a visit from Santa Claus on that magical night. The smell of pine and popcorn fills the house bringing memories of Christmases past.

Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until October, docents from the National Museum of Civil War Medicine will explain how Frederick became “One Vast Hospital.” Arguably the most trying moment in city’s history came after the Battle of Antietam in the fall of 1862. The town’s population doubled when 8,000 wounded soldiers were delivered by ambulance to make-shift hospitals throughout Frederick.

Initially the walking tours will be limited to 12 participants. Masks are required throughout the tour and we request that you practice strict social distancing. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many of those same buildings still make up the historic district today.

Throughout the American Civil War, Frederick, Maryland played a vital role to both Union and Confederate armies. Soldiers marched beneath the “Clustered Spires” on their way to battles at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Monocacy. The “One Vast Hospital” tour focuses on the wreckage left behind.
