    Sunday is a great day to experience Midwinter Mischief.

This new experience combines theatrical storytelling, historical interpretation, and period dining to create an interactive and intimate journey through the Village, and is unlike anything we've done before,” said Darin Johnson, Senior Strategist at Old Sturbridge Village. 

    Each day the first tour leaves Bullard Tavern at 9:3 a.m. and the last tour leaves at 3 p.m. Tours run every 15 minutes.
