Victorian Christmas Carolling at the Log Jam

A fireplace, the log-cabin walls surrounding you, and carollers standing by your dinner table gleefully singing. This might seem like dinner from long ago, but it can be yours at the Log Jam in Grand Ledge! Join us for an evening of good tidings and warm holiday wishes as we celebrate the joy of the Christmas season with food, friends, and song. Hosted as a benefit event for the 2017 Victorian Days Festival in Grand Ledge, Michigan.

Songs will be sung in the spirit of the Victorian era, when carolling experienced a resurgence in popular culture. There will also be special limited-edition Victorian carolling song books will be given as gifts to the first 25 people who donate $5 or more. Included are many of those old favorites that give extra warmth during the holiday celebration, and maybe one or two new ones. Tickets to the 2017 Grand Victorian Ball will be available, too, for the early-bird price of $25 each.

What: Victorian Christmas Carols at the Log Jam
When: Tuesday, 13 December, 2016 from 5pm to 8pm
Where: 110 W Jefferson St. Grand Ledge, MI 48837

Proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to support the 2017 Victorian Days Festival (May 6 & 7 of 2017) and the Grand Ledge Area Historical Society, allowing us to present historical, educational, and culturally enriching events and activities.
