Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park is conducting a beautiful tour of seven homes in one of the most beautiful and historic sections of Canandaigua on December 6th from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm. Each tour stop is unique in its own way and you may view them in any order you wish. Participants are able to enter the homes.
Drive yourself (sites will be marked with wreaths on garden hooks in front of each home) or enjoy traveling to these locations by free shuttle bus. Sonnenberg Mansion will also be open to the public on the day of the tour. Please note that you may park in legal areas along the streets or park in the Sonnenberg parking lot and ride a shuttle bus that will be touring the route throughout the day.
At 2:00 pm vocal music will be provided by students from the Canandaigua Middle School in the festively decorated Sonnenberg Mansion. Refreshments will be available throughout the day in the Mansion and facilities will be available in Sonnenberg's Carriage House. Trams will be available to transport you to the Mansion and Carriage House on this day.
