Celebrate the holiday season with Mabry-Hazen House during its annual Christmas tours from 5-8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, and from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. Mabry-Hazen House will be decorated in the spirit of the holiday, historically-inspired refreshments will be served, and there will be a few surprises as well.

On Saturday evening, carolers will perform traditional favorites and Santa Claus will attend and be available for pictures. The historic house will open for visitors to casually walk through and enjoy a festive mix of modern and historic decorations.

Mabry-Hazen House’s holiday exhibit titled "Holiday Greetings: A Century of Christmas Cards” will return for a second year! Nearly 100 years of holiday cards addressed to the Hazen family will be on display for visitors to learn about this sentimental holiday tradition.

Tickets are not required to attend, but donations are deeply appreciated. The event is free for members and children under 13; a suggested $5 donation is encouraged for all others.

A $5 donation enters individuals into drawing for a door prize for a limited-edition porcelain replica of Mabry-Hazen House. The historic house is located at 1711 Dandridge Ave., Knoxville.
