Chadds Ford Tree Lighting

November 18, 2017 @ 4:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Please join us as we begin a new community tradition in Chadds Ford, PA on Saturday, November 18 for the inaugural Potts Meadow Tree Lighting, presented by the Chadds Ford Barn Shops and the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art. Threatened by development in 1967, Potts Meadow was the first piece of property to be acquired and permanently protected by the Brandywine Conservancy, which marks its 50th anniversary this year.

The evening’s festivities will take place at the Chadds Ford Barn Shops and will include musical performances by students from the Oxford Arts Alliance; hot chocolate, gourmet local food, and wine for purchase; the chance to begin your holiday shopping at the Chadds Ford Barn Shops and pop-up artisan market; a surprise visit from Santa; and the lighting of the Potts Meadow holiday tree. Visitors are welcome to bring a lawn chair to relax around the bonfire.

Saturday, November 18 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Tree lighting will occur at 5:30 p.m.
