Yuletide at Storrowton

Eastern States Exposition’s Storrowton Village Museum will present Yuletide at Storrowton, Dec. 2 & 3, 11am to 4pm, in West Springfield, Mass. This free winter festival brings the community together to celebrate the holidays with traditional Yuletide activities, entertainment, and shopping in the historic Village. The event is also a stop on the annual West Springfield Boys & Girls Club Holiday Tour of Homes Dec. 2.

Decorated through the generosity of area garden clubs, florists and designers, the Village buildings will be bursting with innovative and original ideas to turn your house into a holiday wonderland. Walk through the buildings to find beautiful wreaths, swags, garlands, fresh evergreens and all natural materials around every corner.

Yuletide coordinator and Master Gardener Thelma Greene of Chicopee will oversee the festive decorating project.  Participating clubs and florists include: the Agawam, East Longmeadow, Wilbraham, Springfield and West Springfield Garden Clubs; the Garden Club of the Westfield Woman’s Club; Deena Rollet of Merry Mite Gardens in Suffield, Conn.; Anthony Gladu of West Springfield’s Rose Petal & Thorn; Flowers by Webster; and the Eastern States Exposition Landscape department.  Storrowton Village Volunteers will serve as costumed guides for the event.
