Celebrate the spirit of giving. Make your own traditional gifts, shop locally in our holiday market, and enjoy holiday fare, all to seasonal songs sung by local school choruses. Browse the holiday market’s locally made furniture, jewelry and more. Visit the DIY craft tables for free all-ages crafts—felted soaps, pinecone bird feeders and more. Enjoy uplifting music from local youth. Hot savory food and drink will be for sale in the dining hall.


Get a fun photo with family and friends in our restored antique sleigh.
