Upper Left: 2013, circus theme, paying tribute to the Holiday Cirque hosted this year | Upper Middle: 2004, first year for the Snowmen at Cornerstone; here they are in a classic “Z” procession | Upper Right: 2009, Snowman being catapulted by slingshot across the highway into the champagne vines at Gloria Ferrer | Right Middle: 2011, snowmen took over for Rudolph and are pulling Santa’s Sleigh | Bottom Middle: 2010, the snowmen built their own Giant “SF Giants” snowmen to celebrate the Giants Winning the World Series that year.

Now in  it’s 10th year, the Annual Snowmen Display and Festival have become a Sonoma Valley Holiday Tradition. Plan to come see what these crazy snowmen are up to for 2014.

The Lighting of the Snowmen is kicked off with a festival and actual “lighting” on the 1st Sunday in December, annually, but the Snowmen installation/display remains up through December 29th for everyone to enjoy.

The public is invited to come out and see what the snowmen are doing this year and take family/holiday pictures among the beautiful 22+ landscape architecture gardens (all complimentary admission, and open daily 10a-4p) as well as enjoy holiday shopping (7 unique shops), wine tasting (3 onsite wineries), or have a delicious lunch (Park 121 Café|Market|Grill)

More about the story behind the Annual Cornerstone Snowmen Display:

The event began in 2004 after David Allen, owner of Artefact Design & Salvage at Cornerstone Gardens, 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 2013 display featured an acrobatic snowmen balancing on a wire was inspired by a circus that performed at Cornerstone Thanksgiving weekend.

More about the Lighting of the Snowmen Festival: (Held 1st Sunday in December Annually – festivities begin at 3pm)

The festival features, live music, Santa photos, holiday movies, wine and beer tasting, and crafts for kids. “It’s sort of an old fashioned event,” said Raffo. “I love that people could celebrate the holidays and appreciate the gardens with the feeling of community.” (quote from Press Democrat article, http://www.pressdemocrat.com/article/20131208/articles/131209585)
