Christmas at Stagville Open House @ Historic Stagville
Dec 8 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Historic Stagville invites you to a holiday open house from 12 noon to 4 p.m. How did the Bennehan and Cameron families celebrate Christmas? What was Christmas like for African American families enslaved in North Carolina? How did they celebrate? What were they afraid of? And how did they preserve the Afro-Caribbean tradition of Jonkonnu?

Explore Stagville and learn about holiday traditions for all families at one of the largest plantations in North Carolina. Visit the house of the Bennehan-Cameron slaveholders, the 1851 house of an enslaved family, and the house of a freed family after Emancipation. You can help decorate these houses for the coming Christmas season! The open house includes music, holiday crafts, and more. This event is free to all.

Jonkonnu Lantern Tours @ Historic Stagville
Dec 8 @ 5:15 pm

Do you know the story of Jonkonnu? This Afro-Caribbean holiday tradition was celebrated by enslaved families on the Stagville plantation right here in Durham County, one of the few sites in the United States with a documented Jonkonnu tradition. Enslaved people used the music, dance, and costumes of Jonkonnu to preserve their ancestors’ West African heritage, and to resist the cultural erasure of slavery. Jonkonnu became a new tradition all its own, and a distinctive part of the African American culture of North Carolina. On December 8th you can see a performance, tour historic buildings, and learn more about the history of Stagville and the meanings of Christmas during slavery. After the performance, explore the Horton Grove slave quarters by lantern light, with tour guides telling stories about the African American history of Stagville. The Historic Stagville Foundation will serve holiday cookies and other treats.

Tickets are $5 per person, children 3 and under free, and the price includes holiday refreshments. Call 919-620-0120 to purchase tickets today! Tickets are NOT refundable– if you aren’t able to make it, or if the event is cancelled due to inclement weather, you will have made a donation to support the education and future events at our local historic site!

ALL parking will be at Horton Grove and there will be no access to the Bennehan House. Dress warmly! This event will likely be chilly and dark, and there will be walking over uneven ground.
