The High Point Museum is hosting its 46th annual Holiday Open House Sunday, December 2 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. People of all ages are invited to enjoy an entertaining day at the Museum, located at 1859 East Lexington Avenue. It will highlight and showcase High Point’s history, while helping the local community to get in the holiday spirit.

The Open House presents a fun-filled day featuring holiday-themed musical performances from local groups, arts and crafts, refreshments include hot apple cider and cookies, historical demonstrations such as a blacksmith and spinning and of course a visit from the one and only Santa Claus.

The Heart & Soul Singers from the Arc of High Point will be performing at 1:30 p.m. Once again Joe Shelton will perform with his dulcimer in the John Haley House throughout the afternoon. Members of the Andrews Band will be performing between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Santa Claus will make a special appearance from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Beta Omicron Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma will be reading holiday stories throughout the afternoon.   

"This event has something for all ages," Edith Brady, Museum Director, said. "It's a festive way to come together with other High Pointers and kick off the holiday season."

This is the last week to see the traveling exhibit “North Carolina in the Great War,” from the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

It's the perfect time to shop for everyone on your gift list at the High Point Museum Store.
