Allerton Park and Retreat Center
Mark your calendar for December 2-4 and Allerton’s Holiday Showcase, presented by Sterling Wealth Management. After an opening Friday night that coincides with the start of their annual Holiday Glow from 5 to 9 p.m., the Showcase continues from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, featuring artisans and a chance to make reservations for lunch in the mansion! Other holiday activities are being planned and will be announced later.
Showcase tickets go on sale Oct. 3. For more info go to https://allerton.illinois.edu/events/holiday-showcase-139/.
The Holiday Glow features an illuminated one-mile walk through the gardens of Allerton Park after dark. The path will be familiar to Allerton visitors, including a trip through the Fu Dog Garden and other Allerton favorites.
This year, the walk will stay illuminated all the way through January 14, 2023 so you can enjoy the lights well beyond Christmas and the New Year. There is a suggested donation of $10 per car upon arrival (excluding opening night). You can make a donation online or they can be made at the North entrance of the Park.
