Stan Hywet presents Deck the Hall on select nights November 26 - December 30.  The estate is decorated with one million holiday lights, and the Manor House décor is inspired by the theme of Lights, Camera, Christmas.

Outside, the gardens and grounds will be decorated once again with one million holiday lights, the perfect setting for a brisk winter stroll. Dazzle in the Great Garden features three holiday songs choreographed to the display of lights.

Family favorites and classic Christmas movies will be staged in 21 spaces in the Manor House, with 25 decorated trees to create a festive holiday atmosphere throughout. Just like going to the movies, guests will start the Deck the Hall tour in “movie theater lobby” aka the Reception Room, but decorated with ticket stubs, candy and popcorn. Then it’s a red carpet walk in the Linenfold Hallway with walk-of-fame stars and film reels setting the scene.

The display in the Music Room tells the story of The Nutcracker, featuring stage costumes from the Cleveland Ballet. Other talented local decorators and artists, including Akron Makerspace and the local Lego Group, NEOLUG, are part of the team creating a Deck the Hall display in the Manor House worthy of the silver screen.

Molly’s Shop is brimming with unique holiday gift items for everyone on your list. The air in the Courtyard is scented with the irresistible smell of freshly baked gingerbread wafting from the Gingerbread Hut. A hot cookie and cocoa or beer, wine or a pretzel from the Salty Reindeer are a great way to end a perfect evening at Stan Hywet’s Deck the Hall.

Dress for the weather and plan on a 60-minute outdoor walking experience. 

Note:  tickets are PRE-SALE ONLY.
