“Crafts of the Season” at the Historic Houses in Fairmount Park

Join us for a day dedicated to creativity, community, and the crafts of the season. Each historic house will have creative activities and workshops for kids and adults alike. The day will include demonstrations from local artists and designers and several of the houses will have “makerspaces” where guests can create their own one of a kind ornaments, wreaths, cards, and other seasonal crafts. In addition to art and crafts, many houses will have games and other family-friendly activities. Of course, nothing brings cheer to the children like seeing Santa! Visit Lemon Hill Mansion for a pic with ol’ St. Nick!

Presented in partnership with CraftNOW Philadelphia 

Participating historic houses include Cedar Grove, Historic Strawberry Mansion, Laurel Hill Mansion, Lemon Hill Mansion, Mount Pleasant, and Woodford Mansion. All houses are located within East and West Fairmount Park in Philadelphia.
