The Annual Holiday Heritage Festival is fun for all ages!

As the leaves begin to change colors and sweaters are being fluffed for cooler weather, The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville is making final preparations for the upcoming holiday festivities. Just around the corner is the Annual Holiday Heritage Festival scheduled for Friday, November 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Historic Heritage Village.

A variety of artisans and craft makers will be demonstrating their skills in making soap, blacksmithing, cane grinding, quilt making, and syrup making. Other hand-made crafts will include glasswork, pottery, basket weaving, ornament making, jewelry making, and candle making. Along with the crafts, antique farm engines will be on display, horse and buggy rides will be provided, and guests will be given the opportunity to actually tour the campus.

The BCF Faculty Wives will be selling baked goodies, homemade chili, and ham biscuits, with all of the proceeds going directly to the BCF scholarship fund. Multiple musical groups will be performing throughout the event adding that special touch of the holiday season.

Along with the Holiday Heritage Festival, a life size Old Testament Tabernacle replica will be on display in Heritage Village beginning November 11 and will be available for tours until November 22 every day except Sundays.

The Music and Worship Division will also be performing their “Festive Christmas” musical free on November 22 beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Wellness Center for guest to enjoy before the Holiday Heritage Festival beginning at 11:00 a.m.  Everyone is invited to attend all of the events planned for the day.
