NightWood at The Mount Edith Wharton’s House & Gardens

November 22, 2020 by Corey A. Edwards

NightWood at The Mount Edith Whartons House and GardensLooking for something fun and safe to do in the Berkshires this holiday season? Visit Edith Wharton’s house and gardens to experience NightWood at The Mount, 5 unique scenes of light, sound, and color. November 19th through January 3rd, 2020 in Stockbridge, MA.

2020 continues to be challenging, right up to the end of the year. Many of our traditional holiday events have either been seriously limited, gone virtual, or called off entirely. It is difficult to conceal a bright light, however, and the Berkshires continue to shine in bright holiday colors despite the pandemic.

Some Berkshires holiday traditions, like Winterlights at Naumkeag, are able to go on almost unchanged. Others, like Stockbridge Main Street At Christmas and Berkshire Museum’s Festival of Trees, have gotten creative and adapted.

Then there are new attractions like NightWood at The Mount.

Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas 2019

November 18, 2019 by Corey A. Edwards

Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas 2019Have you ever seen a painting that was so warm and welcoming that you wish you could step right into it? The chance exists at Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas 2019, the annual recreation of Norman Rockwell’s famous 1967 painting. December 6-7 in Stockbridge, MA.

Norman Rockwell may have been gone for over half a century, now but his body of stunning artwork continues to live on. One of his most iconic holiday images, “Home for Christmas,” depicts a quintessential, small New England town on Christmas Eve. Rockwell was living in Stockbridge, MA at the time and its Main Street served as both inspiration and a model for the painting.

Moving forward to today, very little of Stockbridge’s Main Street has changed since Rockwell copied it to canvas. Add in a few vintage cars and Christmas decorations you could be looking at a live version of the painting. What a great idea! So great, in fact, that that is exactly what has occurred every holiday season for the past 30 years.

This year’s event is just weeks away – and you’re invited!
