The Roycroft Campus offers an array of holiday events, shops and galleries with high-quality, handmade gifts for customers who want to enjoy a special shopping experience and seasonal festivities.
Throughout the holiday season, the Roycroft Campus’ Copper Shop Gallery will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will kick off a series of events on Nov. 30 as part of Small Business Saturday. Stop by to take advantage of special sales and giveaways, artist demonstrations and holiday treats.
Starting on Dec. 5, the Copper Shop Gallery will be hosting three Holiday Happy Hours on Thursday evenings from 5 to 7 p.m. A different holiday song theme will dictate the sales each week, starting with Santa Claus is Coming to Town, followed by White Christmas on Dec. 12 and All I Want for Christmas is You on Dec. 19. Complimentary refreshments will be served. The Happy Hour continues at the Roycroft Inn with drink specials and live music.
The premiere event of the season will be the Roycroft Campus Holiday Show on Dec. 7 and 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring over 30 local artists and vendors, and activities for the whole family. There will be several shopping locations throughout four Campus buildings; guests will receive a free ornament (while supplies last) if they visit all locations and get their program marked.
Visit with furry friends from Thistle Creek Alpacas and watch demonstrations in glassmaking. Also, make sure to bring the little ones to visit Santa at the Roycroft Chapel from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, and take a horse-drawn carriage ride on Saturday. Fresh-made kettle corn, food trucks and Kornerstone Café will be on site throughout the weekend.
While on Campus, be sure to check out the other shops and artist galleries in the Furniture Shop and Print Shop, and learn more about the history at the Campus’ Museum. Stroll through the Village of Trees on the Great Lawn presented by the AT EA Group. Stop by The Roycroft Inn for holiday cocktails in the Craftsman Lounge and a delicious meal. Don’t miss the Holiday Spectacular on Thursday, Dec. 21 featuring Rob Montone and the Lounge Lizard Society.
