Lenox Caroling Festival means Christmas in the Berkshires

As if it weren’t exciting enough to have 30 (30?!) of New England’s finest caroling choruses descending upon Lenox for the Lenox Caroling Festival, the event has truly evolved into so much more than caroling!

Joining the dueling choruses are a variety of other events scheduled for December 10 and 11. Shakespeare and Company will present David Sedaris’ Santaland Diaries. If you have read Sedaris’ essay by the same name, you know just how hysterical that might be. If you have not…and you enjoy irreverent humor with a holiday twist, you’ll have to check it out.

The Venfort Hall Museum is located right across the street from Hampton Terrace and they are hosting the Designer Showcase AND the “Les Petites Dames De Mode” 19th century fashion exhibit. Venfort is a grand mansion, originally designed and built for the sister of J.P. Morgan. Come, soak in the 19th century glamour.

The Lenox Library will delight you with their Gingerbread House contest. Mmmmm, edible art!

Or…are you the kind of person that wants to see the Berkshires behind the scenes? Don’t miss the home and inn tour…while you take in the town’s holiday décor.

The caroling competition itself is nothing to sniff at – the winning chorus will take home $2,000 and present an encore performance. Spectators are encouraged to walk the town with the carolers, in order to vote on their favorite performances.

We at Hampton Terrace will of course be offering our Romantic Weekend Package, which includes a $30 Gift Card to Lenox’s wine/gourmet food shop and full breakfast by candlelight.with a 2-night stay (and more!) as well as terrific off-season rates.
