Explore Winterlights

As the holiday season fast approaches, three of our most beloved properties transform from foliage festooned forests into illuminated winter wonderlands. Trustees staff and volunteers are hard at work decorating and stringing miles of lights to create our three iconic Winterlights experiences. The Trustees premiered Winterlights in 2018 at Naumkeag in Stockbridge and Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens in North Andover, with Bradley Estate in Canton debuting their Winterlights show the following year.  

All three locations will host Winterlights this season, and all three sites will host special evenings with exclusive Winterlights viewings for Founders Circle members.  

“After the success of our Founders Circle evenings last year, and the perennial excitement around Winterlights, tickets this year are selling out fast!” said Trustees Managing Director of Development Kirsten af Klinteberg, who oversees the Founders Circle. 

The largest and most well-known display is at Naumkeag, which was recently nominated as one of the best public holiday lights displays in the country by USA Today for a third consecutive year.


“Our properties are community hubs all year long and at The Trustees we take pride in adapting our unique places to allow more people to gather and celebrate in nature.”

– Nicie Panetta, Interim President and CEO
