Christmas at Blithewold - A Grand Tour of Europe, Inside the Mansion Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 5 pm
This year, Blithewold's Christmas theme, "A Grand Tour of Europe," celebrates the Van Wickle family’s love of travel. Stroll through the Mansion as we take you on a 1903 Grand Tour of Europeroom by room. The Mansion is open for touring Tuesday through Sunday 11a.m. - 5 p.m. Buy your admission tickets online or at the door.
Dedicated volunteers spend over a year planning and crafting the perfect decorations tailored to the theme and designed for each Mansion room. The decorating begins the day after Columbus Day each year and barely wraps by Thanksgiving. This year we've decided to allow everyone a sneak peak by capturing this labor of love in pictures and in words. Follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr and Twitter to see pictures of years past or this year's work-in-progress. Or read the Christmas at Blithewold blog for behind-the-scenes reporting as each beautifully decorated room unfolds.
Christmas at Blithewold begins November 23rd, come and enjoy the elaborate decorations. Make a reservation for our fun and informal afternoon teas, the Santa sing-alongs, the joyous musical performances, and the creative workshops for both children and adults! Visit the Blithewold events page for a complete list of activities.
