Greenville, Delaware is a cozy suburb of Wilmington. Its residents value the quiet, small-town vibe, but love that they’re so close to the amenities of major cities. The Greenville and Wilmington area likes to go all out for holiday celebrations. If you’ve just recently moved here or you’re visiting, you’ll want to check out the following winter festivals.

A Farmer’s Christmas Through the Years

A Farmer’s Christmas is a unique winter festival presented by the Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village. This year, it’s being held from November 26 through December 17. You’ll enjoy a journey back in time as you walk through the main exhibit hall. Take in the festive decorations and music by carolers while you enjoy freshly baked holiday treats, try your hand at holiday crafts, and check out the artisan demonstrations.

Holidays at Hagley

The Hagley Museum and Library is a local favorite for Wilmington residents any time of the year. From the beautiful gardens to the American invention exhibit, it’s always worth a visit. But you shouldn’t only come in the summer for the gardens. Every year, the Hagley Museum puts on a festive holiday party. This year, Holidays at Hagley is being held from November 25 through January 1. Check the website for the right times for the day you plan to visit.

This year’s theme is “All Creatures Great and Small.” It’s a celebration of the animals, both domesticated and wild, who have called Hagley home for the past two centuries. During the Holidays at Hagley celebration, you can enjoy holiday home and garden tours. They are also holding their annual gingerbread house competition (back for its fifth year). You can view entries from local individuals and families in the barn. If you can’t make it during the day, stop over for an evening twilight tour.

Fire & Ice Festival

The winter fun doesn’t end after Hanukkah and Christmas. If you’re up for a two-hour drive, you can keep the party going by visiting Bethany Beach—a delightful resort town that goes all out for the season. This season, the Fire & Ice Festival is being held from January 27 through 29, 2023, with a “Movie” theme. Take the tasting tour with 10 signature-themed cocktails.
