Christmas in the Country at Dewberry Farm
We open our Christmas Lights and Cut your own Christmas trees on November 27 (dates and hours vary)! At Dewberry Farm, we take Christmas serious. Providing over 1 million lights on our Christmas Trail of Lights ride, your family is bound to create new memories and want to come back every year. Our light show is dazzled with lights, sparkles, stars and candles, wreaths, elves, and trees. Bring the family out and experience Christmas lights like you never have before. Dewberry Farm will be transformed into a whimsical Christmas Village, with twinkling lights, garland, ribbons and tinsel. Hop a wagon for a merry ride across the prairie to see the magic of over one million lights set to music! Shop at the Country Store! Visit Santa and our Giant Snow Globe for photos ops. Indulge in sweet treats and Christmas goodies! Enjoy 30+ attractions … including the Dewville Express Train, all included in the price of admission!
