We have lots of fun events planned at Fairlawn for the holidays! Please join us for any or all of these festive holiday events!
On Saturday November 29, we’ll be participating in Small Business Saturday. Cookies and coffee will be available in the gift shop (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.), and we’ll have 15% off on gift shop merchandise. We’ll also have a drawing for a copy of “Restoring the Splendor”, a beautiful full-color book that illustrates the restoration of Fairlawn Mansion. And…for every $10 you spend, you’ll have a chance to win a great prize package from the Superior-Douglas County Area Chamber. Check out the chamber’s web site for more information.
Thursday December 4 is our annual Holiday Sampler. Doors open at 5 p.m. Come and enjoy a selection of wines and craft beer (courtesy of Keyport Liquors) and a buffet of savory and sweet treats.
