Mark your calendars, travelers: December 7th through 9th, the 2nd Annual Lenox Caroling Festival graces our beautiful town of Lenox yet again. Last year’s inaugural festival was a delight.
The Caroling Festival competition fills Lenox’s streets, outdoors, with the glorious sounds of caroling ensembles. Ensembles are assigned to their own outdoor venue, where they sing a brief program of seasonal songs. There are judges for the competition but their votes are only weighted at 50%. The remainder of the determination is made by popular vote. Ballots are available at each outdoor venue, and are turned in at participating retail locations. Festive dress is encouraged – for both carolers and spectators.
The festival is accompanied by other seasonal events, including the Festival’s Opening Reception at our dear neighbor, Venfort Hall. From 6 to 8:30pm, attendees will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and music from last year’s second-place ensemble, the MCLA Allegrettos. Tickets for this elegant event are $16 Single; $30 Couple, with an advance RSVP or $20 Single; $35 Couple, day of. Venfort Hall is also the host of the festival after party, Dancin’ At The Mansion.
You will also be able to catch The Santaland Diaries, at Shakespeare & Co. on this special weekend, enjoy holiday menus and entertainment at Lenox restaurants, and you won’t want to miss the 8th Annual Gingerbread festival…we’ll post more on these additional events as the time nears.
