Pioneer Christmas

A Time for Celebration

Pioneer Heritage Company

Pioneer Christmas: A Time for Celebration is an interactive audience-oriented experience featuring Mormon pioneer stories, games, dancing, music, and songs that would have been a part of a 19th century Mormon pioneer Christmas celebration, including a visit from Father Christmas. The program is one-hour long and designed to engage both children and adults in a festive atmosphere of Christmas singing, fun and well-wishes.

The Church History Museum and the Pioneer Heritage Company have partnered over the last few years to present a Christmas program in the museum theater. The Pioneer Heritage Company is a living history organization for families founded in 1998 and dedicated to authentically preserving pioneer crafts and material culture. The groups costumed living history portrayers are passionate about the 19th century way of life in early Utah. They wear authentic costumes, share true stories, and preserve and share early pioneer homemaking and workplace crafts and skills. In addition to hands-on demonstrations, they present historical programs and vignettes.
