Enjoy Colonial Williamsburg All Year Round

DoG Street Covered in Snow


In the winter months, Colonial Williamsburg focuses on training staff members and much needed maintenance projects. While most Historic Area programming is paused in January, programs and exhibits, such as German Toys in America and We are One: Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence, are featured at the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. Carriage rides continue down Duke of Gloucester Street with an added air of calm and tranquility. Looking for a bite to eat? Chowning's Tavern is the spot to escape the cold for an 18th century-inspired meal.



Spring is the season of new life and new growth. Lambs will be born and the historic gardens are in bloom. A new Nation Builder, George Mason, will make his debut in the Historic Area and discuss his role in writing Virginia's Declaration of Rights. After much research and an archaeological dig, the Carpenters will begin construction of a porch at the Raleigh Tavern, which will make the building more historically accurate. New experiences will be had at the Wythe House, Randolph House, Anderson Armoury, and Geddy House, and historic farming will be located behind the Prentis Store.
