Christmas at Bidwell Mansion

Bidwell Christmas 001It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Bidwell Mansion. BMA elves were busy decorating last week with new old-fashioned holiday decor.

December is a wonderful time to visit the Mansion, and a great place to take your out-of-town guests. The Bidwell Mansion Association will hold its annual Holiday Event for members and their guests on Friday, December 6th. For a donation of $25 you will be treated to catered appetizers, wine-tasting from New Clairvaux Vineyards, an exhibition of fine art photography, a tour of Bidwell Mansion in all its holiday splendor, costumed guides, AND . . .

the opportunity to be greeted by General and Mrs. Bidwell themselves. Yes! John and Annie will welcome you to their home in person!

If you are interested in the BMA Holiday Event on December 6th, please let me know and I will see that you get tickets. You can email me at

Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park will also be open for Holiday Night Tours on Tuesday through Friday, December 12th-15th. Another chance to enjoy Bidwell Mansion at Christmas!
