Celebrate Christmas with Joy, Glad Tidings & Beautiful Traditions



Every two to three years, the Westampton Township Historical Society creates a magical evening full of all the joys and wonders of Christmas’ past and present. During the Rancocas Village Christmas Tour we help our visitors step back in time and enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas the way it was meant to be.


During our tour, we close the streets to vehicular traffic and bring back the horse drawn carriages. We start outdoor fires to roast chestnuts and mull cider. Enjoy the smell of fresh pine and the sound of holiday music and try out a horse-drawn carriage ride. And most important of all, historic homes and public buildings throw open their doors and invite the world in to visit with us.

We take “decking the halls” very seriously around here. Many of the homeowners have extensive collections of Christmas collectibles. You’ll find everything from groups of Santa figures to complete ceramic villages.

The Rancocas Village Christmas Tour is also a “park and walk” tour since the entire tour is within a three-block radius. Prior to the Tour, tickets are available at local businesses (exact businesses to be announced as the date approaches). Tickets are also available the night of the Tour.
