Highfield’s Winter Wonderland Village


November 27 – December 13,  2020

Highfield Hall & Gardens in Falmouth has been a destination for those seeking fairies and whimsical miniature fairy houses for several years! 

The current climate of social distancing and pandemic concerns effected every person visiting Cape Cod this year, and by offering an outdoor exhibition Highfield served thousands of visitors since June of 2020 looking to engage in healthy and creative activities. Highfield’s current Fairy House installation remains on view through September. 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…

Thus, the Winter Wonderland Village is in the works for the 2020 Holidays, keeping safety protocols top of mind. World renowned environmental sculptor Patrick Dougherty’s Stickwork, A Passing Fancy, located on the front lawn, will serve as the Winter Wonderland Village backdrop. In the fairy house tradition, the miniature village will be created using natural elements, and feature representations of woodland creatures, gnomes, tiny worlds, in a holiday theme if one wishes. 

We are looking for creative individuals who would like to present their unique representation of a Winter Wonderland. Highfield’s new exhibit will be of particular interest to those with a background in art, floral, horticultural, landscape, and/or architectural design talent to submit their interpretation of a miniature winter wonderland to be built and set outside on the lawn during this year’s Holidays at Highfield.

Winter Wonderland Village opens to the public on November 27th and remains open until December 13th 2020.


We invite you to join the celebration, and submit your interpretation and design of your miniature winter wonderland for our village this holiday season to Joanne Ingersoll, Director of Programs and Exhibitions

Deadline for submission is October 30th.
