Here is the calendar of the events taking place the weekend of December 6th through the 8th in Stockbridge Massachusetts. We at Abbott’s Limo highly recommend making plans to participate in the festivities if at all possible and immerse yourselves in this magical New England setting. Stockbridge will be decorated with almost endless garland, wreaths, and lights to bring to life Norman Rockwell’s painting of the village during the holidays.
Friday Dec 6th the weekend will start off at the Stockbridge Library. You can gather around the hearth to hear classic stories relating to the season. This will start at 5:00pm and end at 6:30pm the admission is free.
Saturday Dec 7th there a couple things starting at 11:00am, the self-guided Holiday House Tour is from 11:00am – 4:00pm. This hugely popular event is a tour of some popular properties in the area, consisting of 1862 Seasons on Main B&B, Merwin House, Naumkeag, Southmayd Farm, Windermere, and October Mountain Farm. Tickets for this event are $20.00 per person. They can be purchased in advance through the chamber office, or at the Red Lion Inn the day of the event.
The Red Lion Inn by the way is definitely the place to stay for the weekend if you really want to be in the heart of it all.
Also starting at 11:00 – 11:30am at the Library there will be a Children’s Holiday Story Time to get your young people in the spirit if the season.
At 6:00 – 7:00 on Saturday evening join the Luminaria Caroling walk starting right in front of the Red Lion Inn. Don’t forget your candles or flash lights. I personally like putting a paper bag over a flashlight instead of a paper lantern with a candle for my luminaria, either will work.
7:30pm at the First Congregational Church there will be a Holiday Concert with a fantastic holiday musical program. Featuring Music Director Jack Brown, with the Berkshire Lyric Chorus, the Blafield Children’s Chorus, tickets are $20.00 in advance and $25.00 at the door.
Sunday Dec. 8th from 12.00pm – 2:00 pm Main Street goes back in time with music, handbells, caroling, antique cars, food, Santa’s workshop, and a visit from Santa himself. Relive what Norman Rockwell saw that inspired his famous painting Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas. Festivities for this are $5.00, kids under 12 are free. You will receive a button commemorating this event upon entry that will also give you a discount through Dec. 15th to the Norman Rockwell Museum.
