      Christmas Feast Show & Sale
    • Saturday, December 3, 2016
    • The public is invited to the Mennonite Heritage Center, 565 Yoder Rd., Harleysville, on Saturday, December 3, for the opening of the Christmas Feast Show and Sale. The Saturday opening features a one day-only Farm Market in the historic barn on the Heritage Center campus with local food vendors, along with fine craft and art shows in the Heritage Center. The shows include fine pottery, wooden bowls, baskets, textiles and other fine crafts. Art work by area artists, and fraktur and calligraphy artists are also available for purchasing. The Heritage Center craft and art shows are also open Sunday, Dec. 4 from noon to 4 pm. The weekend event is a joint holiday tour with the Goschenhoppen Historians, Green Lane, and the Schwenkfelder Library & Heritage Center in Pennsburg. The Goschenhoppen Historians transform their museum into a Christmas tree wonderland and have a bake sale that is a Pennsylvania German epicurean delight. Schwenkfelder Library features an elaborate Christmas putz, exhibits and a well stocked gift store with unique items. The event is free of charge at all three sites. The Christmas Feast Show and Sale at the Mennonite Heritage Center continues through the month of December. Also on display during December is the exhibit "A Riot of Color: Quilts from the Community." The exhibit features numerous colorful pattern and scrap quilts from the Mennonite communities of Bucks and Montgomery Counties and will be on display until March 2, 2017. Visitors will enjoy the variety of patterns and riotous color combinations that reflect the Pennsylvania Dutch culture of early to mid twentieth century Mennonite women.
