A festive Boone Hall event to usher in the Christmas season.
As they've been doing for the last couple of years, Boone Hall kicks off the season with a two-day Christmas Tree Festival. Here’s your chance to pick up a fresh-cut evergreen tree, a handmade wreath, garland, or other holiday plants to decorate your home for Christmas.
At the Christmas Tree Festival, you'll also have your pick from a slew of fun holiday-themed activities like cookie and ornament decorating, visits and photos with Santa, Ferris Wheel rides, demos, photo ops with Winter Queen characters, vintage trucks, and plenty of festive treats like warm apple cider, rich hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.
Admission is $10 for ages 3 and up (free for those under 3). In 2022, if you purchased a Christmas tree while there, your $10 admission would apply as a $10 discount on your tree.
