What To Know About Visiting Westfield For Christmas

Westfield will be hosting 'Twas The Night Before Christmas on Saturdays, Dec. 8, 15 and 22 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Admission for an adult is $12.00, a senior (65+) is $10.00, a youth (6-17 years) is $6.50 and a child 5 and under is free. We also have a family rate for $32.00 which includes 2 adults and 2 youth. Westfield accepts the Hamilton Conservation Authority Membership card which allows 2 adults and up to 4 youth in for free. (We do not accept the rewards coupon which is given out when membership is purchased.)

When arriving at Westfield you will park and walk to the admissions area. We will be selling tickets at the door which you will see on the right hand side. If you have a membership card or have pre-purchased tickets online please use the kiosk on the left hand side. We do need you to print your online ticket and hand it in to the gate attendant. Please keep in mind that the online ticket does not guarantee you entrance into Westfield - sometimes our parking lot reaches capacity. Also, if for some reason you are not able to use your ticket you may use the ticket for an event in the new year.

Top Secret Insider Information

Westfield's Christmas program is very popular and we will get busier the closer to Christmas that we get. We have limited parking so if you are planning to meet family and friends we recommend coming for 5:00 p.m. to get a parking spot. We sometimes do run out of space in the parking lot. Our fireworks will be going off at 6:30 p.m. If you enjoy seeing the fireworks you will want to give yourself enough time to get through the admission area and head over to the Victorian Bandstand for best viewing. (Hint: we have observed that in the past people do leave after the fireworks so if fireworks are not your thing you may have a chance for parking again at 7:00 and 7:30 p.m. - no guarantee of course.)

We accept cash, debit and credit at Admissions, the Gift Shop and Ironwood Hall for this event. We also have unique buying opportunities in the Historic Area. Visit the  General Store and Mitt Shack (cash only in these two spots) to buy a sweet treat or  handmade Christmas ornament.

Father Christmas will be here, carol singing is in the church and volunteers are eager to share Christmas traditions through the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian time periods. There is lots to see and do so we recommend leaving your pet at home. Dogs are not permitted in any of the buildings and they probably would enjoy the warmth of their own bed and hear about your adventures upon your return.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Happy Christmas!
