Christmas by the Hearth

Reservations for Christmas by the Hearth will begin after Thanksgiving. We will open reservations on Eventbrite to our season passholders who have subscribed to receive emails and then to the general public a few days later. The link to register will be available on this webpage. Stay tuned!

During the holiday season, travel back in time to rural, 19th century, New Brunswick and experience a Victorian Era Christmas in one of Kings Landing’s historic homes. This year, the Joslin, Hagerman, Jones and Gordon homes will be hosting traditional Christmas dinners and you’re invited to take part. Each home will be in full festive décor inspired by a Victorian Christmas carol.

While you enjoy the company of family and friends, the family hostesses and dresser will be there to share a variety of 19th century Christmas traditions with you. Christmas dinner in one of the historic homes is sure to make the holiday’s history come alive for you.

Your holiday dinner will be served family-style, on the table, starting with Cream of Turkey Soup and brown bread. The main course will consist of Roast Beef, Turkey, Herbed Stuffing, Potatoes, Vegetables and all of the traditional trimmings. For dessert, enjoy a tasting trio of gingerbread, mincemeat pie, and apple blossoms with tea or coffee.

For Christmas by the Hearth, you’re invited to dress the part! Those who are able to may book a costume fitting with the Kings Landing Wardrobe Department. Our seamstresses will select one of the Kings Landing costumes and alter it to your size. If you’re unable to attend a fitting in person, you can call and discuss your sizing needs with our wardrobe department. We’ll do our best to have an outfit ready for you – though fit cannot be guaranteed without a proper fitting! Costumes are not mandatory!

Each party at Christmas by the Hearth will be escorted to their selected home by horse and wagon from the Welcome Centre.
