Join us as we welcome 2021 – the 75th Anniversary Year of Old Sturbridge Village with a new commemorative calendar. In early 2020, we launched a photography contest and, as a result, we received more than 400 entries! It was hard to choose just 12 winners, so we expanded the calendar to 18 months. We also added even more photos on each page as a complement to the black and white photography from our archives. These photos celebrate the beautiful New England seasons of the Village and are combined with vintage photos of years past.

Ring in the New Year with a beautiful keepsake calendar for $19.46 and save a bundle, on a bundle of five – just $75, and your loved ones will appreciate this thoughtful holiday gift.

The proceeds from this calendar will support the mission of Old Sturbridge Village as we enter our 75th year and beyond!
