Christmas at Historic Strawberry Mansion

Every year, Fairmount Park’s largest historic mansion is lovingly dressed in classic Christmas décor for the enjoyment of holiday visitors.

A new theme is presented each year. In 2018, “A Very Storied Christmas” was designed by the Garden Club of Philadelphia and Vicinity and the Porch Club of Riverton. That year’s theme celebrated the long history of the Free Library of Philadelphia and its 130 years of promoting literacy for all Philadelphia citizens. Each room in the mansion depicted a scene from a beloved Christmas story, including “The Nutcracker,” “The Polar Express” and “The Night Before Christmas.”

Other Christmas events include participation in “A Very Philly Christmas” featuring some of the best-regarded music organizations in Philadelphia, and the popular Holiday Candlelight Tour which evokes Christmases past in a unique and lovely way.
