The Junior League of Greenwich (JLG) will host its annual holiday fundraiser, The Enchanted Forest, on Thursday, November 16 – Saturday, November 18 at Christ Church, Greenwich.

That’s right, The Enchanted Forest is moving to Christ Church! This new location is centrally located for the community and brings home The Enchanted Forest to share with the entire Greenwich community.

The Enchanted Forest (TEF) draws thousands of visitors each year from Greenwich and beyond. The new location will still hold all of the traditional activities the town has come to appreciate about the event to include gingerbread workshops, photos with Santa, Santa’s breakfast, and children’s entertainment.

Doors open on Thursday, November 16 at 6:00 pm for the “Sneak Peek” featuring a holiday boutique, beautifully decorated trees and gingerbread houses.

The official opening of the Enchanted Forest will take place on Friday, November 17 at 9:00 am for Santa’s Breakfast attendees. General admission hours are 9:00 am – 6:00 pm on Friday, November 17 and 9:00 am – 6:00 pm on Saturday, November 18. Other features and highlights occurring throughout the weekend include The Children’s Giving Shop, choral groups, and dance companies.

Funds raised from The Enchanted Forest go directly toward supporting impactful community projects that are identified, designed and implemented by the Junior League of Greenwich. For more information and to purchase tickets visit www.501auctions.com/jlg
