Winterlights Returns to Dazzle the Holidays at Trustees’ Properties

Nov. 24th starts the festivities!

November 11, 2023

The always-popular event known as Winterlights will have three Trustees of Reservations’ properties awash in dazzling holiday light displays starting Nov. 24. Tickets are now available to purchase online.

This year, Winterlights returns to Stevens-Coolidge House and Gardens in North Andover, Naumkeag in Stockbridge, and the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate in Canton. The immersive holiday light displays also feature festive music and seasonal treats. In 2020, Winterlights was named a top 10 Public Holiday Light Display in the country by USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. Winterlights landed at number six on the list, which includes holiday light shows from across America.

“The magic and joy of Winterlights attracts thousands of visitors to these three special places each year,” said Katie Theoharides, president and CEO of The Trustees. “We are grateful that so many families chose to make holiday memories with us these last several years, and we are eager to welcome them back this holiday season.”

The three sites will open for Winterlights on Nov. 24. Stevens-Coolidge will feature Winterlights through Dec. 31, while Naumkeag and the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate will operate the show through Jan. 6. The shows run from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays at all three sites. The financial institution Citizens returns as a sponsor of the event at the Bradley Estate.

Each year, The Trustees add new elements to Winterlights with displays comprised of hundreds of thousands of energy-efficient LED holiday lights interspersed throughout the properties.

This is the sixth year for Winterlights, and the event sells out quickly. Interested visitors are encouraged to purchase their tickets soon. Member Day is Dec. 9 and Trustees’ members will enjoy a complimentary non-alcoholic beverage and double discounts in the properties’ gift shops, perfect timing for holiday shopping.

Tickets are discounted for Trustees’ members and on Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, adult tickets are $20 for members or $25 for non-members, and children’s tickets (Age 3-13) are $7 for members and $12 for non-members. On Fridays through Sundays, tickets are $25 for adult members and $30 for non-members and children’s tickets are $7 for members and $12 for non-members. Children aged 2 and under are admitted for free.
