Gettysburg PA – November 21, 2007 The Fairfield Inn, located eight miles west of Gettysburg, will offer two deliciously entertaining weekends, December 7 & 8, and 14 & 15.

Magnificent Holiday decorations, Hot Spiced Cider, fires blazing in all the fireplaces, live festive music & entertainment, delicious food, decadent treats and the most wonderful company makes for a spectacular Holiday Feast.


Century old traditions and cuisine influence each of the theme weekends. The feast and entertainment recreates the atmosphere of an authentic Civil War Era and 18th Century Holiday Celebration casting aside much of the pomp and circumstance to highlight the food, fun and fantasy of the Holiday Season. An ensemble of the talented choral group, Cormorant‘s Fancy, will perform Civil War era and all-time favorite Christmas songs. Vocals, the lap dulcimer, penny whistle, acoustic base, concertina, guitar and piano will be used in this entertaining evening of heart-pounding, feet-stomping Irish Jigs, haunting Slow Airs & Reels, Traditional Folk Music of the 18th & 19th Centuries and, of course, the traditional annual Christmas song sing-a-long all performed live while revelers dine on a delicious feast of monumental proportions.


The Civil War Caroling Christmas Feast highlights the music of the 19th Century. Travel back in time when friends and family joined soldiers and sang for holiday entertainment. Dine on the delicious four-course Feast, sit back and enjoy the show or join in on a sing-a-long. You might even be whistling Dixie by night’s end. Civil War Caroling Feast Friday, Dec. 7 at 7:00 pm & Saturday, Dec. 8 at 6:00 pm.
Lord Baltimore’s Feast of Christmas will feature the beautiful ballads and Christmas carols of the 18th Century while the four-course Feast is being served.  In 1735, Lord Baltimore sold off 247 acres and in 1757 Squire William & Isabella Miller built The Fairfield Inn. Lord Baltimore had many Feasts celebrating the upcoming holiday and in keeping with the holiday festivities, the tradition of the Christmas Feasts began in 1786 in what is now the oldest continuously operated Inn in the Gettysburg and Adams County area.  This year’s bountiful Feast of Christmas will take place on Friday, Dec. 14 at 7:00 pm & Saturday, Dec.15 at 6:00 pm.
