Edsel & Eleanor Ford House Winter Wonderland

Dec. 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17

Winter Wonderland

Enjoy a holiday evening stroll throughout the Ford House grounds under thousands of glimmering lights! Glowing luminaries, toasty fire pits, carolers, hot cocoa and toasty treats will warm your spirits at this year’s Winter Wonderland. Santa will welcome and mingle with children of all ages inside the historic garage, and stop to take a look inside his workshop, where the holiday magic happens! You will also take a stroll down Candy Cane Lane, where you can peek inside the decorated Play House windows, stop with a story teller and get a candy cane treat. Our Trim-A-Tree competition with local school children also returns, featuring about 20 creatively decorated trees. Add on an optional strolling house tour to see the Fords’ home all gorgeously decorated for the holidays. Grounds-only Winter Wonderland tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Children 2 and under are free. Buy early and save! You can save $5 off a purchase of 4 grounds-only tickets by using the coupon code FAMILY at checkout, through Nov. 30. Tickets for both the strolling house tour and grounds are $20 – space is limited and available only in advance. We will have hot cocoa, snacks and adult beverages for sale on site. Cotswold Café will be open and taking reservations for holiday dinners. Visa or Mastercard only, please.
