Holiday Showcase

December 8 - December 10

$10 - $28

Celebrate the season at Allerton! Come out to shop for gifts, enjoy tours of the decorated Mansion, and relax with friends over drinks or lunch. The Showcase features specially-selected artisans and businesses selling their unique products, handcrafted wares, and baked goods. (Interested in becoming a vendor? Apply here.)

Friday evening (5-8pm) will kick things off with our opening night event All is Bright. Take a stroll on the Kirby Winter Wellness Walk, and warm-up in the Mansion with a cash bar and live entertainment as you browse the vendors and have a bite to eat. (Purchase tickets for All is Bright here.)

Saturday and Sunday (10am-4pm) will feature our visitor-favorite lunch buffet at 11:30am or 1:30pm (advance purchase required). Learn the unique history of the Allerton family and Mansion on a tour (held on the hour from 10:30am-3:30pm; no registration necessary), enjoy festive performances throughout the day (Details TBA), and sip on complimentary coffee and tea. And don’t miss the chance to cuddle-up on a memorable carriage ride around the Estate! (No advance reservations; cash only.)
