Highfield’s Winter Village 2021

November 26 – December 12, 2021

Stickwork Installation returns this Holiday season!

Before it leaves the grounds forever, we will again be creating a special outdoor holiday “village” for Highfield Hall’s Stickwork sculpture A Passing Fancy by world renowned environmental sculptor Patrick Dougherty. Located on the Highfield front lawn and in the fairy house tradition, the miniature village will be created using natural or upcycled elements and be inspired by the the theme, Time for Joy!

Highfield Hall & Gardens has been a destination for those seeking fairies and whimsical miniature fairy houses for several years! We wish to continue to offer the public an outdoor, holiday themed experience, where families and individuals can be in nature, safely distanced and in fresh air, exploring art and partaking in festive activities this holiday season.

Winter Village opens to the public on November 26th and remains open until December 12th 2021.


Announcing one more chance for creative individuals submit their unique interpretation of a miniature winter wonderland to be built and set outside on the lawn during this year’s Holidays at Highfield. Let this year’s theme, Time for Joy, inspire you to build a special place, time, and/or habitat to reside inside the sculptural maze. Space is very limited, and all work must reside within A Passing Fancy, while serving as points of interest on our “map of joy”. This exhibit will be of particular interest to those with a background in art, floral, horticultural, landscape, and/or architectural design talent.
