Celebrate the holiday season with a truly unforgettable experience - a horse-drawn carriage ride offered one wintery evening each year. For the cost of a movie ticket, create a holiday memory of a lifetime. This dark sky carriage ride even is offered as close as possible to a wintery full moon. Begin a new holiday tradition or keep your favorite one going with your family, friends and Harrisonburg's favorite horses, the Classic Carriage Team. Horse teams are harnessed in jingle bells for this festive Holiday celebration.
Reservations are recommended. To reserve a seat for you and your family, friends, or significant others, please call the arboretum at 540-568-3194. Walk-up rides may be available. Tickets are $18 per adult, $12 per child (infants 2yo and under can sit on laps) and $75 for a private carriage (4 adults/2 adults and 3 children).
As it is a possibility that all rides have been sold out, we strongly recommend that you call ahead of time.
