Holiday Event At Old Bethpage

Old Bethpage Village Restoration is hosting Candlelight Evenings later this month.

The evenings are an “old-fashioned holiday celebration complete with 19th Century holiday decorations, entertainment, and much more,” according to Nassau Executive Edward Mangano.

They’re slated to run 5-9:30 p.m., Dec. 15-Dec. 17.

Candlelight Evenings at the village restoration (1303 Round Swamp Road Old Bethpage) offer a Hallmark card setting of flickering candles inside the village’s historic homes, along with 19th Century holiday decorations and entertainment, all set within the confines of a rural valley setting. Among the forms of 19th century entertainment offered will be music, including a brass quartet and fiddlers playing popular seasonal tunes as well as performers by local schools and organizations, a traditional 1866 decorated Christmas tree, stories of Christmases past; contra-dancing, and a traditional bonfire.

Hours for the village restoration are Wednesday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Entrance fees are $10 for adults, and $7 for children ages 5-12, seniors and volunteer firefighters. Children under the age of 5 are free.
