When is the best time to come to Christmas at Mustard Seed Hill?
This year, we have a full calendar of events around Christmas at Mustard Seed Hill. Depending on which attractions you want to experience, you may want to plan your visit around a specific event…or just come multiple times! Our light display, which is FREE and open to the public, will be available for viewing every night from 5PM-11PM. During that time, visitors can drive around the campus, or park and walk through the campus to see the lights up close. During the week, our indoor facilities will be closed.
The Artisan's Market will be open every Friday and Saturday evening from 5PM – 9PM, leading up to Christmas Day. During this time, our local vendors will have booths set up for visitors to shop and check out local goods for sale. The Holiday Cafe will also be open during this time for visitors to purchase refreshments. (You don’t have to grab and go – you can grab a seat at a table while you eat, and enjoy some live music from one of our local performers).
The Allen House will be open for tours, including a walkthrough of the Gingerbread House Display every Friday and Saturday night from 5PM-9PM.
Can we take photos and videos of Christmas at Mustard Seed Hill?
Absolutely! Our unique light displays are exquisite to see, but a picture can’t quite capture the full experience the same as seeing them up close and in person. But you are welcome to capture photos of the lights and of your party enjoying the festivities.
Note: The Gingerbread House Display is a paid exhibit, and we don’t want to spoil the experience for other visitors, so we ask that while you are touring the inside of the Allen House, you do not take photos of the Gingerbread House display.
