Kick-off the Holiday Season During Holiday Preview Weekend Nov. 22-24


Get a head start on the holiday season during the Mid-Atlantic Center for Arts & Humanities’ (MAC) Holiday Preview Weekend Friday, Nov. 22 to Sunday, Nov. 24!

The Physick Estate becomes a Christmas wonderland during the holiday season and Santa and his elves have decked out the Physick Estate with thousands of lights and holiday trimmings. Enjoy a wide variety of holiday tours and food and wine events to get you into the Christmas spirit.

The free Carroll Gallery exhibit, An Old-Fashioned Christmas, brings back happy childhood memories, capturing the feeling of Christmas past with model trains, a Dept. 56 Dickens Village beneath the boughs of our giant Christmas tree, and much more (through Jan. 1, 2020).

Visit the Estate on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. as Santa arrives to flip the switch for the festive Tree-Lighting Ceremony, sponsored by Sturdy Savings Bank.

That evening, the Physick House will be open for free, self-guided tours from 6-8 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to share in the holiday spirit and bring a non-perishable food item for the Cape May Community Food Bank. For kids, there are Santa’s Trolley Rides and a chance to visit with old St. Nick himself. Grown-ups will enjoy holiday ghost tales during Ghosts of Christmas Past Trolley Rides and Holiday Lights Trolley Rides.
