Join us as we open the Loring Greenough House for a day of fun and festivities December 2nd!
On this merry Saturday, stroll throughout the first floor and see the rooms decked in their holiday finest. Join us in our historic kitchen for refreshments and meet local vendors. Bring your pooch for a holiday photo. Enjoy a mini winterfest outside with The Hive.
To top it off, our annual tree and wreath sales will be happening outside too!
And as luck would have it, Mayor Michelle Wu will be lighting the Christmas Tree at the Monument across the street at 3pm!

Returning this year will be our popular Holiday Pet Photos so our doggie neighbors can join the fun! A specially curated vignette will set the scene, with a professional photographer to capture your dog’s holiday spirit! (Owners are welcome, too!)

Photos will be emailed a few days after the photo; all proceeds benefit the preservation of the Loring Greenough House! 12:30pm to 2:30pm
