The inaugural Christmas at Cantigny celebrates the new McCormick House and brings Christmas lights, music, and family fun to the gardens and grounds.
Watch for exciting pop-up attractions and activities during the festival, including photos with Santa (Dec 2-3), musical performances and a new ice skating rink outside the Visitors Center.
The renovated McCormick House, lavishly decorated for the holidays, will be open to the public for the first time since 2020.
Cantigny’s holiday light show offers a magical experience. Walk through the gardens and be captivated by lighting that enhances traditional holiday decorations. Immerse yourself in the festive spirit and don’t miss the chance to admire the hundreds of famous Cantigny poinsettias on display inside the house.
Enjoy a scenic outdoor skate at our new rink on the Parade Field. Admission to the rink is $7; spectator access is free. Skates are available for rent for $3.
Warm up with a hot beverage and snack in our heated hospitality tent overlooking the ice rink.
