CHI (P) - Explore Chicago! Christmas Candlelight Tour of Glessner House

Private Christmas Candlelight Tour of Glessner House

Friday, December 8, 2023
Celebrate an authentic old-fashioned Christmas at Glessner House this holiday season!

TTN will have the entire Glessner House to ourselves for this Private Tour! This very special one-hour tour will highlight Christmas customs as observed by the Glessner family. The house will feature elaborate decorations of the late 19th-century including a live 10’ tree decorated with period ornaments, toys, holiday crafts and the dining table set for an eight-course Christmas feast.

Glessner House has also graciously offered us use of the Coach House for a dinner gather of pizza, wine and dessert so we can celebrate the Holiday Season! The Coach House formerly housed the horses/carriages, and is now a beautiful and interesting space that will be set up for the Holidays with lights, table decor and Holiday Music.

We will have three groups of eight people. The first group will depart at 5 pm, follwed by the second and third groups shortly after.  Everyone will meet in the Coach House after for the festivities.

There is free street parking as well as a small free private lot that we will have access to. This information will be sent out to the final group of registrants.

Cost: $42/person includes Glessner House Private Tour, Dinner, Wine and Dessert!

This will be a popular event so sign up quickly!
