WHAT IS YULETIDE AT STORROWTON?

Eastern States Exposition’s Storrowton Village Museum will present Yuletide at Storrowton, Dec. 1-2, in West Springfield, Mass. This FREE winter festival brings the community together to celebrate the season with traditional Yuletide activities, entertainment, and shopping in the historic Village.

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 home into a holiday wonderland. Walk through the buildings to find beautiful wreaths, swags, garlands, fresh evergreens and all natural materials around every corner.

The event will also be a stop on the annual West Springfield Boys & Girls Club Holiday Tour of Homes Dec. 1.
