Kris Kringle Outdoor Market

Christmas Markets around the world offer a unique and memorable experience for all ages.  This will be Belle Grove’s second annual winter market. We are building it bigger and better yet with safe, social distancing. We will have local artisans and producers on the ground. On the upper level of the Beverley B. Shoemaker Welcome Center will be Santa, food, and hot mulled wine and other warm beverages for sale, and wreath making classes.

In addition, there will be music, a petting zoo, and a free ballet performance. The Museum Shop will be open and is stocked with unique and local items too. Admission to the Market is free, but there is a fee to tour the Manor House (which will not yet be decorated for the holidays).

Get a jump on your holiday shopping–there are dozens of vendors confirmed so far! Vendors will be spaced with ample social distance. All guests over the age of six must wear a mask indoors at this event (unless eating or drinking).
