It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Meadow Brook Hall’s annual Holiday Walk is here for the 48th season, bringing unmatched holiday splendor and an enchanting series of events through Monday, Dec. 23.
“Landmark in Lights” features more than 50 glittering trees—including an all-new artist designed ice castle tree and a 10-foot tall Poinsettia tree created by 150 live plants—hundreds of feet of garland and thousands of twinkling lights.
Open daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and until 8 p.m. on select Late Nights, Meadow Brook’s Holiday Walk takes visitors through the grand rooms and grounds of the National Historic Landmark decked in opulent holiday decorations, including Knole Cottage and Danny’s Cabin.
Late Nights allow visitors to see The Hall lit up at night, and warm themselves by bonfires. Holiday-inspired drinks are available for purchase until 8 p.m. Late Nights are Saturday, Dec. 14, Monday, Dec. 16, and Wednesday, Dec. 18 through Monday, Dec. 23.
The Final Weekend of festivities takes on a magical new atmosphere with a visit from Santa and two of his live reindeer! Guests will also have the chance to see the lights at night, while warming themselves by the bonfire and sipping seasonal adult beverages until 8 p.m.
Children of all ages can participate in “Cleo’s Adventure,” inspired by the Dodge-Wilson’s beloved pet St. Bernard, Cleo. Children can participate in a special scavenger hunt while touring the mansion, then collect a prize at Candy Cane Cottage.
Holiday Walk tickets are $20 for adults, $7.50 for children ages 6-12, children age 5 and under are free. On Mondays and Wednesdays, seniors age 62 and older receive $5 off admission.
Tickets for the final weekend of events featuring Santa and his reindeer on Dec. 21-23 are $22.50 for adults and seniors, $10 for children ages 6-12, children age 5 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased onsite in the Holiday Shop. Tours are self-guided and reservations are not required.
The 2019 Holiday Walk is sponsored by Oakland University Credit Union.
