Lighting of the Snowmen Holiday Festival

Now in it's 12th year, the Annual Lighting of the Snowmen has become a Sonoma Valley holiday tradition! Mark your calendars now, you don't want to miss the 2016 festivities! 

This year, the Lighting of the Snowmen kicks off with a festival and actual lighting on SATURDAY, December 3rd and the display will remain up through the end of December for all to enjoy! 

The event began in 2004 after David Allen, owner of Artefact Design & Salvage at Cornerstone, discovered hundreds of decorative snowmen at a factory in Boston. The factory, which manufactured the snowmen exclusively, was closing, and Allen decided to purchase the stock to use at the gardens. Each year since then, the snowmen have been arranged into a creative and stunning scene that is different each year.

The festival will feature live music, kids crafts, wine + beer tasting, delicious food, festive decoration and more!
