Bartow-Pell unveils holiday schedule inside and out mansion, including ‘Christmas Carol’ performances


Editor’s note: This press release was provided by the Bartow-Pell Mansion.

We welcome you to celebrate the Holidays at Bartow-Pell this December with a sweet and safe experience indoors and out! There will be beautiful candy-coated trees throughout the mansion and in the carriage house. Our museum will be open for timed and ticketed Candlelight Walk-Throughs and Daytime Holiday Walk-Throughs beginning Friday, December 4, 2020. Performances of Mr. Dickens Tells a Christmas Carol will be offered on the weekends of December 12-13 and 19–20.

Since this year will be like no other, we’ve made special arrangements with several local vendors to offer exclusive pre-ordered holiday wreaths and floral arrangements to deck your own halls this season. And, because we cannot be all together to enjoy our traditional Holiday Luncheon this year, we’re hoping you will consider supporting Bartow-Pell by pre-ordering a boxed lunch beautifully crafted by Scarborough Fair Catering. Buy one for you, or purchase a few as gifts for your loved ones, or anyone in your pod/bubble, and toast to Bartow-Pell.

While the grounds are open every day, our new Candy Cane Carriage House Gift Shoppe will be open on the weekends from December 5 through December 20. Be sure to stop by for sweet treats and oh-so-special gifts. We will also be offering hot cocoa and yummy jingle dogs for purchase.

We are striving to keep our Bartow-Pell Holiday traditions alive this year, and we hope you will share some sweet moments with us. We are especially grateful for your support during these challenging times.
