Woodburn Illuminated at Woodburn - The Governor's Mansion

Friday | December 8 | 6-8pm

As the winter days grow shorter, we all seek a warm and cozy place to escape the cold and dark. And what better way to do that than by attending the Woodburn Illuminated event on December 8th at 6:00 pm! At this unique event, we're bringing back an age-old tradition of candle-lit illuminations that were used to cheer, entertain, and celebrate in the 18th and 19th century. In partnership with First State Heritage Park and the Governor's staff at Woodburn, we're excited to revive this art form and light up the night with a warm and inviting glow.

Take a leisurely stroll through the grounds of Woodburn and admire the stately home's decorations while enjoying the gathered illuminations. Listen to the soulful music that will surely lift your spirits and sip on hot cocoa to keep yourself warm. This one-night-only special event promises to revive your holiday spirits and make your heart glow with joy. Join us at Woodburn Illuminated and let the candlelight illuminate your holiday spirit!

Join us at the Biggs Museum beginning December 2 to learn about the Wyeth family of artists and create illuminations inspired by their work in our Child Help Studio.

Don't worry if you missed your chance to visit us before the big day, you can still find our hands-on studio at Woodburn Illuminated starting from 5:30PM. So come on down and let's brighten up the holidays together!
