Evening Programs

Add a Little Drama to Your Nightlife


The fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down. From spooky ghost tours to public trials to concerts of 18th-century music, you’ll find an array of nightly performances in the Historic Area.

Due to high demand, we encourage guests to purchase evening program tickets in advance. Please note: children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a ticketed adult, and not all programs are appropriate for young children. Explore each program page to learn more.

Discounts on evening programs are available to all Annual, Good Neighbor, and Collegiate Pass holders. To receive that discount, pass holders must purchase tickets in person at any Colonial Williamsburg ticketing location, or by calling (888) 965-7254.

Drop Spindle Spinning Class

Drop Spindle Spinning Class

Join us for a fun wool-spinning class for beginners. In this hands-on workshop, learn how to spin your own yarn and receive all required supplies, including your own drop spindle — modeled on an original 1770 antique and unavailable in stores — to take home. We will work with wool from our own rare Leicester Longwool sheep and discuss the history of the drop spindle as well.

Not recommended for children under seven. Children 17 or under must be accompanied by a ticketed adult.
