Christmas Tree Lighting

Join us on Saturday, November 27th for our annual Smolak Farms Tree Lighting! Enjoy a cup of hot cocoa or cider and a famous cider donut while we kick off the holiday season with crafts for the kids, fun photo opps, a singalong with the Zackleys, and of course, a visit from Santa!

Activities in the barn will begin at 3:30pm. Santa will arrive and we’ll light the tree around 6:00pm!

Kids will need a wristband to participate in offered activities in the barn. Each kids wristband will include access for one adult chaperone (due to barn capacity limits). Additional adults can be purchased for $3.

Wristbands are $12/child and include:

  • make-your-own Christmas ornament
  • cider donut
  • animal food
  • a letter to Santa

If you’d just like to attend the tree lighting, enjoy live music, and snap a photo with Santa, that’s all free and open to all!

**This year we will be collecting donations for Daybreak Shelter in Lawrence, MA! They are in need of toiletries, socks, underwear, etc. All donations are so appreciated!**
