Holiday Family Activities in Western Massachusetts



Six, that’s right, six days until Christmas! I’m hoping that all of your shopping and baking is done. I’m hoping that your house is decorated and ready for your guests. I’m hoping this because there are so many wonderful holiday family activities that you can still enjoy in Western Massachusetts. Here are a few of my personal favorite!


Santa’s Trains at Look Park in Northampton - Now through December 23 from 4-8pm and December 24 from 10am-2pm. This event is free and open to the public.


The Look Park Garden House has been transformed into a Victorian-style train station with all the sights and sounds of the holiday season. Children of all ages will have the chance to meet Santa in his workshop and explore a magical wonderland combining model railroading, countless holiday trees, and New England village landscapes.


Don't forget to visit the Winter Wonderland Holiday Lights display at Look Park as well. Running through New Year's Day, the Park comes alive with a holiday light display nightly from 5pm-9pm.


Public Skate, Mullins Center, UMASS, Amherst. Grab your skates and the family and head over to UMASS Amherst for some holiday fun! Adults are $7 and children 7 and under are $5.


Wednesday, December 20, 11:30-1:30PM

Friday, December 22, 3-5PM

Saturday, December 23, 4-6PM

Sunday, December 24, 1:30-3:30PM


Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory & Gardents, South Deerfield. Take a break from the cold and head over to Magic Wings in South Deerfield. Dress in layers because once you're inside it can get a little warm. This is an 8,000 square foot indoor conservatory that houses almost 4,000 butterflies. Admission is $16 for adults and $10 for children ages 3-17.


On Saturday, December 23, head over to the Salmon Falls Gallery in Shelburne Falls and enjoy Blue Moon jazz music. Blue Moon plays the music of Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter, and Duke Ellington. This is a free event. Click here for more info.


Enjoy the holidays!
