Maymont Carriage House Lawn (1700 Hampton Street)

Ring in the holiday season at Maymont! Make a new holiday tradition on the Carriage House Lawn with family and friends under the twinkling lights, evergreen garlands and charm of Maymont’s historic corridor. Cozy up to a fire pit with a cup of good cheer or hot cocoa and browse hundreds of unique gift items in a curated local artisan market, the Vendor Village presented by TowneBank.

Live music will keep spirits high, while tasty food and beverages will keep you fueled for shopping. Pay Rent Brass Band will play Fri, Dec 8 from 6-7:45pm and Sat, Dec 9 from 5-7:30pm. On Saturday, bring the kids for a visit with Saint Nicholas or a ride on the holiday train around the lawn, and they can make their own decorations and DIY gifts at the Holiday Helpers Craft Station.
