A Digital Old-Fashioned Christmas

Available Now!


Manatee Village Historical Park normally holds the event “An Old Florida Christmas” on site in December. Due to COVID-19, this year will be different. While the museum will NOT be having an in-person event, we are excited to offer a different, free digital event called “A Digital Old-Fashioned Christmas.”


This special event for 2020 will include a story time, a craft, and a recipe. The public is invited to watch and listen to “A Digital Old-Fashioned Christmas” from the comfort of their home. Those who access the digital event will be able to enjoy our version of “The Night Before Christmas” which includes a funny twist. We'll show how to make orange & clove pomanders, an easy and refreshing Holiday decoration that smells fresh and spicy. We'll also introduce a special cookie tutorial that’s both sweet and fun.

The 1850 Manatee Burying Ground is the oldest public cemetery in Manatee County. It was the first burying ground for the Village of Manatee, which was the first established white settlement between Tampa and Key West, dating to 1842. The Burying Ground was in use from 1850-1892, with a few family burials occurring up until the 1960s.

Manatee Village Historical Park is excited to offer our first digital event, “Suffragette Tea”!


Watch us celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The 19th Amendment granted certain women the right to vote and was one of many righteous milestones in history. For visitor safety and the safety of our staff members, this event will be digital. “Suffragette Tea” will be pre-recorded and made available through a video platform. Staff members will be in costume and will discuss how tea rooms influenced social and political change while inside a beautiful 1905 house. The house is an antique store and tea room called Charms of Leffingwell, located in Ellenton, FL.


Let us transport you through “tea time” and celebrate with us from the comfort of your home!
