Stockbridge: Main Street at Christmas

Holidays, Kids and Family, Special Event

December 2 | 8:00 am - December 4 | 5:00 pm  

Rediscover the joys of the holidays in Stockbridge, MA. The town becomes a magical New England village decorated with holiday wreaths and festive lights for the season. There is no shortage of holiday activities for the entire family to enjoy. Live performances, historic property tours, holiday markets, Winterlights, unique shops, restaurants, and Santa show off the New England town.

On the first weekend in December each year the town pays homage to Norman Rockwell’s idyllic depiction of village life during the holidays, Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas.

Capping off the weekend on Sunday the town reenacts the spirit of Norman Rockwell’s famous holiday scene Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas. The original painting hangs in the Norman Rockwell Museum located just a few miles outside of town. What happens on Main Street isn’t an exact reenactment of the painting as there were only 16 cars in the painting and the street, which is closed to traffic, features over 50 vintage automobiles (weather permitting). Near the center of the block a Christmas tree fills the oversized window of once Rockwell’s second-floor studio. Roger the Jester and the Victorian Carolers perform on one end of the street while, horse drawn rides, a Makers Market, Children’s crafts and visits with Santa take place on the other end. The street is lined with quaint shops, restaurants and pop-up cafes. It’s such a magical time of year to enjoy with family and friends. Be sure to book your tickets and stay in advance.
