Hard the believe the holidays are here. Before you settle in this weekend, have some fun in Bucks County with these holiday foodie events. Or better yet, bring the whole family with you.

Events are listed in chronological order
1. Gingerbread House Competition and Display
Thursday, December 22, 10 am – 9 pm, Peddler’s Village, Routes 202 & 263, Lahaska, PA
The Gingerbread House Competition and Display at Peddler’s Village is a tasty wonderland that has been on display since December 12. This weekend, take some time to visit the holiday Village Gazebo and check out the wondrous display of houses. There are more than 50 creative entries on display this year.

The display is closed on Christmas Day. Stop by Peddler’s Village early and hit up the Buttonwood Grill for breakfast, and then walk off your full bellies at the Gingerbread House display.
2. Wrightstown Farmers Market
Friday, December 23, 10 am – 12 pm, Barn at The Gathering, 2324 2nd Street Pike, Wrightstown, PA
Are you in need of some last-minute items for the holiday? Don’t even think about setting foot in a grocery store (and dare we say, the mall). Instead, try the Wrightstown Farmers Market and their new indoor location for a special market this FRIDAY. Shop for your produce, meats, breads, preserved foods, chocolates, and great gifts from Bucks County Taste Photography, Lower Mountain Road Pottery, Marie’s Soaps and Woodsedge Farm.
3. Friday Freestyle Flights of Wine
Friday, December 23, 5 – 10 pm, The Washington House, 136 N. Main Street, Sellersville, PA
Interested in trying some new wine? Try this inexpensive way of creating your own tasting flight this Friday in Bucks County. Head to the Washington House in Sellersville, and start by choosing four different wines from a list of 20 wines (the list will change month-to-month). Each taste added up equals a six-ounce glass of wine, and the total for all the tastes of wine is $10. A printed guide includes descriptions to help you choose which wine is best for you.
4. Supper Club at Lumberville General Store
Friday, December 23, 6 – 9 pm, Lumberville General Store, 3741 River Rd., Lumberville, PA
Friday is the eve of Christmas Eve, so why not start your weekend of endless eating early by participating in the Supper Club at the Lumberville General Store. From 6 – 8:30 pm you can dine with friends and community members, and enjoy dishes like seafood chowder and honey glazed BBQ pork ribs. Check out the full menu here.
Also, the Lumberville General Store is hosting a Christmas Eve Supper Club with seatings from 4 – 6 pm. It’s BYOB and $32.50 per person. Give the store a call to see if there are spots left.
5. Live Music from The Bucks Pub
Friday, December 23, 7 – 10 pm, The Bucks Club, 2600 York Rd., Jamison, PA
In the mood to jam to something other than classic Christmas carols? The Bucks Pub at The Bucks Club hosts a Friday night live music and entertainment night. Each week there is a different performer, along with great food and drink specials. This Friday, enjoy the music of Chuck & Kate from 7 – 10 pm. Stop in before for happy hour from 4 – 6 where you can get $2 domestics, $3.50 imports and crafts, $4 house wine, $2 off mixed drinks, and half off assorted appetizers.
6. Christmas Renew & Restore Yoga
Saturday, December 24, 9 -10:30 am, Nourishing Storm Studio & Cafe, 124 N. York Rd., Hatboro, PA
My friend wore a holiday sweater that said “Namaste up and wait for Santa,” and that seems like the perfect thing to wear to this Christmas Eve yoga session. Slow down, breathe and join Megan at the Nourishing Storm Studio in Hatboro. Combined with gentle assists and reiki assists you’ll float right out of class, ready to take on anything, especially the in-laws. Members are free and drop in members cost $20. You can purchase your tickets online. Stop by the cafe itself before or after your yoga session for a fresh smoothie or nourishing beverage.
This yoga studio and cafe is technically in Montgomery County, but what a great idea! Enjoy!
7. Chanukah Celebration: Chinese Food and a Movie
Saturday, December 24, 2016, 7 pm, Chabad Doylestown Jewish Center, 300 E. Swamp Road, Doylestown, PA
It doesn’t happen very often but as some of you may know, Chanukah coincides with Christmas Eve this year. And what do those of the Jewish faith often do on Christmas? Chinese food and a movie, of course (the origin of this “tradition” is that it used to be those were the only businesses open on Christmas Day).
Come celebrate the first night of Chanukah in Doylestown. After lighting the menorah, there will be chinese food and a movie for the kids. Admission is free; food is for purchase. For more information and to RSVP, click here.
