chandeleur%20crepe1

La Chandeleur, also known as Crêpe Day, marks the halfway point between winter and spring.  In France, families celebrate by eating crêpes, which are round and golden like the springtime sun.

Hillwood invites families to celebrate this holiday in festive French fashion amidst the spectacular gardens, magnificent mansion, and exquisite French treasures.

Hear classic French tales inspired by scenes from La Fontaine fables that are pictured on tapestries covering chairs from France displayed in the mansion.

Explore Hillwood’s French treasures through interactive, docent-led, family-friendly gallery talks and a printed activity guide.

Decorate a plate with fanciful designs and flourishes inspired by Hillwood’s French Sèvres porcelain.

And eat Crêpes!!!
