An annual holiday favorite! Hillwood celebrates the holidays in Old Russian style. A fun play based on traditional Russian stories of Grandfather Frost and the Snow Maiden will be performed for the festival again this year. After each performance, families can meet Grandfather Frost, Russia’s Santa Claus, and take pictures with him. While lively Russian folk music enlivens the day, a hands-on art activity will allow visitors of all ages to create their own kokoshnik, a lady’s headdress, or traditional Russian gentleman’s hat. Shopping and festive dining from Merriweather To Go round out this day of family fun.
All of Hillwood’s 2019 festivals are supported by a grant from the Sally Foss and James Scott Hill Foundation. All exhibitions and programs are funded in part by the U.S. Commission of the Fine Arts through the National Capital Arts and Cultural Affairs program.
$18, $15 seniors, $12 Hillwood members, $10 students, $5 children (ages 6-18), free for children under age 6.
