The Junior League of Greenwich announced “The Little Enchanted Forest” will take place at the Greenwich Botanical Center the weekend of November 23 and 24, 2019.

“The Little Enchanted Forest” offers the favorite elements of the Junior League of Greenwich’s signature event “The Enchanted Forest” which had been a beloved holiday experience for over 40 years.

“For more than 40 years, Greenwich embraced The Enchanted Forest and watched it grow from a small group of trees in the basement of St Catherine’s Church to the three-day festival at the Greenwich Hyatt,” said Junior League President Hilary Watson, adding, “Now, the Junior League of Greenwich wants to bring the best parts of this event to the Greenwich Botanical Center and introduce a whole new generation to it.”

The family friendly event will include a “little” forest of decorated trees for auction.

There will be a holiday boutique with specialty vendors who sell everything from fine jewelry and home decor to women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, toys and holiday gifts.

Activities include wreath making workshops. There will be floral arrangements for sale, and a decorated tree/wreath auction.

The Children’s Giving Shop, a child centered shopping experience where kids can shop independently for holiday gifts, is another highlight of the weekend.

Santa Claus will also return to hear those holiday wishes and pose for keepsake photos.

The Little Enchanted Forest Hours are: Saturday, November 23 10:00am- 4:00pm and Sunday, November 24 9:00am – 3:00pm.
