November 5, 2021 – Wondering when we are going to be able to get into the holiday spirit? Well, Hometown Christmas at the Yuba Feather Museum’s Gold Trader Flat will start your yearning for hot cocoa and mistletoe no matter what the weather brings. Whether we’re green or snowy, there will be plenty of twinkling lights and homespun delights at this year’s Hometown Christmas. Come and join in the festivities on Saturday, November 27, in the picturesque mountain town of Forbestown, the home of the Yuba Feather Historical Association’s gold rush interpretive village.

Starting at 11:00 A.M., the streets of the town will be turned into a street fair with vendors of one-of-a-kind, handmade delights for all ages. The Mercantile will be filled with old-time items and handmade ornaments decorating the tree to make shopping fun for children and their folks. Wander the streets of Gold Trader Flat along with folks in 19th century dress. Come and do your holiday shopping in a delightful, country atmosphere to the accompaniment of old time music and carolers. Many vendors of unique goods, from the homespun to expert artistry, will give you a good start on your holiday gift and entertainment list.

There is nothing like the mountain air on a brisk winter day to work up an appetite. Your hunger will be quenched by the hearty offerings of the Gold Trader Flat Pantry and delectable treats from our guest vendors. Culinary offerings will include our great-tasting hotdogs, hamburgers, chili, nachos. Homemade baked goods will be for sale to take home to relieve your own holiday work load. Visit the manger with its live animals watch for Father Christmas to visit with candy canes for the kids. Take a genteel rest and warm your innards at the beautiful Victorian Tea Room in the lobby of the Liberty Hotel. As the sun goes down the streets of Gold Trader Flat will be set aglow with holiday lights – a truly magical sight. The magical holiday spirit will have everyone joining in to sing the familiar holiday songs.

Check the weather reports and come dressed appropriately. Forbestown enjoys a mountain climate and the nights are chilly once the sun goes down. In consideration of the safety of visitors to the mountains, the event may be cancelled or ended early in event of severe weather. If there are any concerns, call the Museum at 530/675-1025.

Admission is free. Donations and proceeds go towards helping support the Museum and Gold Trader Flat interpretive village both of which are supported entirely through private memberships and donations and maintained by volunteers for the benefit of the community. Membership and volunteer information will be available at the entrance for those interested.
