We know how much friends and family love visiting Koziar’s Christmas Village, so in light of COVID-19, we have taken precautions to ensure everyone a safe and enjoyable visit.

In order to keep our employees and other guests safe please do not attend the village if you are or recently have been sick, had a fever, have cared for or have been exposed to anyone exhibiting symptoms.

We also ask that you observe Pennsylvania travel restrictions and guidelines related to Covid health and safety.

UPDATE: Effective Nov 20th, The Secretary of the Pa Department of Heath issued a new COVID-19 related travel orders effective Friday Nov 20th that states in part:

“Travelers entering Pa from other Countries of States as well as Pennsylvanians who are returning home from other countries and states, must have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 Hrs prior to entering the Commonwealth or quarantine for 14 days upon entry into Pennsylvania…”

AND also states: “The Commonwealth also does not dictate how businesses should address or implement those requirements.”

Koziar’s will not require proof of a negative Covid-19 test for entry, nor proof of residency, or any personal travel history of our guests. We do however require masks and social distancing when on property, and are following other mitigating measures such as enhanced cleaning, plexiglass, one directional walkways, and more (see below).

Please keep in mind that Koziar’s is subject to Pennsylvania Covid mandates and we are required to follow health and safety precautions to remain open and serve our guests.

Also please consider visiting the village Monday through Friday; This will help us greatly in our effort to follow required procedures.


We look forward to seeing you at Koziar’s Christmas Village!
