Come Share in "All that glitters..."

At Christmas in the Mansion 2018, you can stroll Lauralton's decorated halls, tour our historic Victorian Gothic mansion, shop for holiday gifts from 50+ vendors (see below), and visit Santa's Workshop for hot chocolate and goodies. You'll also have the chance to win raffle items including gourmet baskets, handcrafted goods, and Christmas trees decorated by our students, faculty, and staff. This year's theme, "All that glitters...", promises to transform Lauralton's historic campus into a spectacular Showcase of the Season. Share in the Christmas Spirit as our doors open to the community on Sunday, December 2, noon - 5:00 p.m. Admission is $10 per person at the door. Children age 12 and younger are admitted free.

Want to shop early? Come to our reservation-only Preview Party, Saturday, December 1, 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. Wear your festive attire and shop our specialty vendors before we open to the community on Sunday.

Standard contribution is $50 per person to reserve. Or, join our Christmas in the Mansion Choir of Angels with a contribution of $75 to $200. Reserve online or download the registration form.
