garland - antelope valley indian museum - holidays on the homesteadThe Antelope Valley Indian Museum has announced the following holiday events.

Chili, Crafters, and Cowboy Songs at
“Holidays on the Homestead”

Celebrate the 10th annual Holidays on the Homestead event at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park (SHP) on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 5 p.m. –  8 p.m. Originally a 1930’s homestead, the museum’s historic grounds will be decorated in vintage holiday style and feature a tour of the grounds, a country craft boutique, real cowboy coffee brewed over a campfire, and hot chocolate or cider for the kids. Explore the unique hand-built museum and whimsical grounds at night, with soft lighting and the smell of fresh greenery, and the wintery sky sparkling over the desert.

 

The country craft boutique features unique gift ideas, handmade by local artists. The crafters carry on the artistic tradition of Howard Arden Edwards, who built the Indian Museum to display his collection of American Indian artifacts. The craftsman-style building is decorated with his colorful representations of Indian culture and creative hand-made furniture.

 

The per-person admission includes a bowl of chili, complemented by delicious cornbread generously provided by The Lemon Leaf Café. Join us for this special holiday event, rain or shine, to support the museum and local artisans

When: Saturday, Dec. 3rd, from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Rain or Shine!
