An annual Sheridan tradition for over thirty years, the Holiday Open House is sponsored by the Trail End Guilds, Inc., and is always held the first full weekend of December. The event features live entertainment and holiday decorations throughout the spectacular 1913 Kendrick Mansion.
The lights! The greenery! The poinsettias! The Kendrick Mansion was just made for Christmas! With eight nine-foot trees decorated to the hilt and fanciful decorations throughout, Trail End is truly a holiday wonderland.
Open House hours are always from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday of December. Admission is four dollars for adults. Children are admitted at no charge, but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
One of the most popular aspects of Trail End's Holiday Open House over the past several years has been the presence of our very own Father Christmas. The Big Man in Red will be at the mansion throughout the open house to listen to Christmas wishes from children of all ages.
Our bevy of musical guests begin their performances at 4:00 and continue through 7:00. If there is a particular performer you would like to hear, be sure and arrive early to get a good seat!
