Fort Christmas Celebrates Pioneer-Style Christmas

The first weekend in Christmas Fort Christmas Historical Park opens the doors to Christmas past with their annual Cracker Christmas. 

The two-day festival is a holiday celebration harkening back to how Florida’s first settlers, Florida Crackers, would’ve celebrated it with by making traditional holiday gifts to making soap from scratch, carving wood, spinning wool and quilting.   

Scheduled from December 1-2, 2012, this two-day event is a popular event in the area.  Not only because it provides a slice of history but because there’s so much to do from the pioneer demonstrations to perusing arts & crafts fair created by  hundreds of artisans, and even a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. 

Christmas, FL’s Post Office will be on hand also to postmark your letters and post cards.   Parking and admission is free for Cracker Christmas.  Gates open at 10am and close at 4pm daily.  Arrive early because this is a popular event that draws huge crowds.

Fort Christmas is located in Christmas, Florida just off State Road 50, twenty miles east of Orlando enroute to Kennedy Space Center, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, and Canaveral National Seashore in Titusville.

Where’s Florida’s Space Coast?

Just 35 miles east of Orlando, you'll find 72 miles of picturesque Florida beaches known as Florida's Space Coast.

Along this impressive stretch of coastline, unspoiled nature preserves exist in perfect harmony with one of the first gateways to space - Kennedy Space Center.

Another beautiful day on the Space Coast;) #MelbourneBeach #spacecoast #visitspacecoast #beachday #lovefl #beach #holidays #70s
