The Charlotte’s Web Experience at Old Sturbridge Village

This summer, Old Sturbridge Village and Brian Clowdus Experiences bring the beloved story of Charlotte’s Web to life at the Freeman Farm with a live musical production based on the classic and beloved tale by E.B. White. This production is a reinvented version of the story, set in a timeless New England era that honors the 1830s but with a modern license to breathe fresh air into the story! In addition to the performance, tour the Village for a “Charlotte’s Web Summer” where you can visit our adorable piglets, see costumed historians re-constructing the Allen Piggery, weaving and spinning yarn, blacksmithing, farming, making tin objects, and demonstrating other aspects of 19th-century life, and special exhibits.
