A HOLIDAY TRADITION

December 5 - 20, 2015 (Saturdays & Sundays Only)

12 noon - 4 pm


Oakland, CA – City of Oakland Parks and Recreation invites you to step back in time and experience a turn-of-the-century Holiday Tradition at the Dunsmuir Hellman Historic Estate. The magnificent 16,224 square foot, 37-room mansion that volunteers would have put in more than 5,000 hours to transform into a breathtaking masterpiece of an Edwardian holiday will be open December 5th-20th (Saturday and Sunday only).

Each room is decorated with elegant holiday trees, garlands, antique furnishings and festive decorations to provide you with ideas for your own home decorations. Visitors can enjoy a light lunch or snack at the Winter Café, while filling their holiday shopping list by purchasing from the Mansion Gift Shop. Kids and families can begin the morning with Brunch with Santa, and afterwards enjoy games, face-painting and other activities. The Holiday High Tea for adults and children is a special treat and wonderful way for families and friends to begin their own tradition and celebrate the holiday season.

This year's special attraction is The Oakland Ballet’s Holiday Premiere for Children. Come enjoy the season with us. The Box office opens October 15th. Reserve your tickets now by calling 510-615-5555.
