Get ready for some serious holiday vibes – Winterlights in the Berkshires is back, and it's not just any show, it's the holiday magic we all need! Picture this: November 24 rolls around, and suddenly, Naumkeag in Stockbridge transforms into this glow-up wonderland. It's like stepping into a holiday movie, complete with twinkling lights, festive tunes, and treats that scream, "ts the season!"
Now, the cool thing about Winterlights is that it's not just happening at Naumkeag; it's also lighting up Stevens-Coolidge House and Gardens in North Andover and the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in Canton. But, let's be real, the star of the show is Naumkeag. It's the OG of holiday enchantment, and the folks behind it even snagged a top 10 spot in USA TODAY's 10Best Readers' Choice Awards for holiday light displays in 2020!

Here's the scoop: Winterlights kicks off on November 24, and Naumkeag and the Bradley Estate are keeping the party going until January 6. They're throwing the sparkle from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. every Wednesday through Sunday. And, because we know you're all about the deets, The Trustees have been busy adding new stuff to Winterlights every year. Think hundreds of thousands of energy-efficient LED lights scattered across the properties, turning them into a real-life fairy tale.
Now, brace yourself because this is Winterlights' sixth rodeo, and let's be real, it sells out faster than you can say "holiday cheer." So, if you're keen on getting in on the action, snag those tickets pronto. Oh, and mark your calendar for Member Day on December 9 – Trustee members get treated to a free non-alcoholic beverage and double discounts at the gift shops. It's like a holiday shopping jackpot!
Here's the lowdown on tickets: they're cheaper for Trustee members and on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Adult members score tickets for $20, non-members pay $25. Kids aged 3-13 get in for $7 if you're a member and $12 if you're not. Fridays through Sundays, tickets bump up a bit to $25 for members and $30 for non-members. But kiddos still get the hookup with $7 for members and $12 for non-members. Oh, and little ones under 2? They're VIPs – free entry!
And here's the drill: you gotta snag those timed-entry tickets online at www.thetrustees.org/winterlights. No walk-ins allowed – you've got to be in the know to get in on the glow!
So, there you have it – Winterlights at Naumkeag is the holiday hotspot you didn't know you needed. It's like stepping into a winter wonderland, but without the frostbite. See you there!
