Sundays, Dec. 2 and 9, Noon – 4pm

The magnificently decorated mansion will delight the senses, from holiday trees aglow to the sparkling sounds of live music and tantalizing smells from the Highfield kitchen. Talented local florists have joined forces with energetic Highfield volunteers to create magical memories for all. Stories, crafts, sing-alongs and demonstrations throughout the day mean fun for the whole family.

Our popular gift gallery will again feature a selection of artisan-made wares and small art works for holiday gift giving. (*note* I won’t be there in person, but you can buy my cards/stationery there!)
