Christmas in Zoar Village showcases an old-fashioned Christmas with naturally decorated historic house museums and visits from the traditional German Belsnickle and Krist Kind. Snacks and meals are available throughout the village, from craftspersons making delicious treats to church groups offering full meals or the local restaurant providing a buffet.

American Folk and Craft Artists fill the historic schoolhouse, the number one house offering unique Christmas gifts and décor. The historic blacksmith and tinsmith shops feature local artisans producing wares the old-fashioned way. The dairy and kitchen operate much as they did 200 years ago and offer a sample of the foods they made in Zoar. The meeting house is filled with music all day from local high school, amateur, and professional music groups.

The main attraction at the event is the tree lighting in the garden. This event starts at the meeting house with a candlelight service, continues with a procession to the garden, and culminates with tree lighting.
