– EVENT EXPERIENCE –
Enjoy some of the best music the NW has to offer. From open to close the sounds of Christmas and country music will fill the air. Acoustic artists will warm up the Fireside Room. Canby’s own Cantalinas Choir and College Kids Variety Show will fill the main stage with the spirit of Christmas. Street carolers will make the campfire merry and featured country music artist Aaron Crawford will rock the Big Red Barn until closing. Aaron and his band are based out of Seattle and are widely recognized as one of the premier country music bands in the northwest. You don't want to miss this! Fun for the whole family.
Christmas crafts are planned for the whole family and will be available from 5pm to 8pm in the Big Red Barn (while supplies last). Create a Christmas booklet and personalize it for family and friends (perfect for gift card giving), try your hand at wood burning or several simple crafts for young elves. Be one of the first 25 adults to arrive and you'll have the opportunity to work with designer Lori Mayo, in creating your own centerpiece with greenery fresh-cut from the grounds at The Grove (a great addition to your holiday festivities).
