Deck the halls and fill your bellies… It’s Christmas and Ancient Lore Village is pulling out all of the stops for a special Christmas Day Brunch just for you! Curated by their culinary artists + chefs, they invite you to join in at the Village for a meal you’ll never forget.

If axe throwing and/ or archery is something you’re interested in doing while you’re there, give them a call at 865.200.2434 prior to your reservation date so they can add that into your schedule as to coincide with your Sunday Brunch visit!
