Help us celebrate the Holidays and help local families in need at the National Baseball Hall of Fame's annual Holiday Celebration on Saturday, December 3rd.
Baseball fans can help make the season merrier for families in need and experience the magic of the holidays in Cooperstown. In the spirit of the holidays, Museum admission is FREE to Otsego County Residents who contribute a new, unwrapped toy or at least two non-perishable food items to our food drive benefiting Opportunities for Otsego and the Cooperstown Food Bank.
Throughout the day visitors can experience hands-on activities and family-friendly programs. Including a special performance by the Pathfinder Village Bell Choir. We encourage residents and visitors to attend the Cooperstown PTA Pancake Breakfast at 8:00am that morning and the Cooperstown Farmer's Market beginning at 9:00am before visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame to watch a special performance by the Pathfinder Bell Choir at 2pm. After you listen to the Bell Choir you can participate in the annual Rockin' Around Cooperstown Ugly Sweater Run at 3pm.
