Christmas at The Grotto

December 17, 2020 @ 9:00 am - January 1, 2021 @ 3:30 pm

This year at The Grotto, due to the social restrictions in place, the annual Festival of Lights will not happen.  Instead, all are invited to come during The Grotto’s usual daytime hours to share and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

All activities on the lower level will be free:

• Visit the Nativity
• Walk the path and listen to the story of the birth of Jesus
• Write intentions on the Trees of Hope
• Visit the Chapel of Mary
• Light a candle
• Take a holiday photo in one of the great photo op spots
• Christmas shop in The Grotto Gift Shop

Those who purchase admission to the Upper Gardens will enjoy special seasonal decorations.

Extra outdoor activities on weekends, including lantern tours and a craft bazaar (details not yet available).
