Come home for the holidays and celebrate the Season of Light at Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum. The 29th annual Candles and Carols at Oak Hill, Berry College’s traditional festival of music and luminaries, will be Friday Dec. 4 and Saturday Dec. 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Visitors will be welcomed by hundreds of luminaries lining the entrance drive to Oak Hill, creating a festive atmosphere for visitors to explore the Oak Hill house and grounds. This family-friendly event will feature several musical groups from the Berry Schools and from the Roman community, including Berry ensembles and Christmas carols sung by the Berry Elementary School choir.
Capture the moment and have your photograph made with Santa and Mrs. Claus—afterward, wander through our miniature village of Berry College buildings while enjoying hot chocolate and other refreshments. Oak Hill’s Mobile Gift Shop will be open for business, selling Berry College Christmas ornaments and other holiday gifts.
Parking and admission will be at the Harbin Clinic’s Main Campus at 1825 Martha Berry Boulevard, with transportation provided to and from the event. Tickets can be purchased at the event—prices are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and free for children ages 5 and under.
