Christmas at the Castle 2021 – SOLD OUT

Loading Events

Christmas at the Castle has SOLD OUT. Thank you for your interest in attending this special event. We hope to see you next year! 

Tour the Lucknow mansion, festively dressed for the holidays by creative businesses and designers to reflect their take on Holiday Carols! Browse the Artisan Fair, take your holiday picture at our photo station, have lunch at the Carriage House Restaurant (first-come, first-serve), and enjoy grab-and-go take-home children’s craft and goodies at this most-loved holiday event.

In order to maintain important safety standards and limit large crowds, the Carriage House is only accessible to ticket holders (no public access). When purchasing tickets we ask that guests select a two-hour time slot to enjoy this event:

10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
11:45 AM – 1:45 PM
1:30 – 3:30 PM

To ensure a positive experience for all guests and ensure there is time to participate in all holiday activities available, we ask that attendees arrive as near as possible to the start of their selected time slot. Upon check-in at the event, ticket holders will be provided a card with an assigned trolley time to be transported to the Lucknow Mansion. The reason for this is to control capacity, ensuring space for social distancing.

Local businesses and designers showcase their design aesthetic by adopting a room in the mansion and filling it with holiday decorations suited to this year’s theme: Holiday Carols.

We are currently seeking businesses who want to showcase their creativity and talent to the more than 2,000 guests that historically attend this popular event! Please see the LOCAL BUSINESSES tab below to learn how your business can get involved.
