2020-21 Winter Cancellations Announcement

After careful consideration of the safety of the public, our staff, and volunteers, we have decided to temporarily close our Castle doors to all indoor in-person events through January 31, 2021.

Christmas is a special time at the Castle, and we know that many of you have made our holiday events part of your annual tradition. But fear not! We are still holding outdoor events and making virtual content available so that you and your family can keep your traditions alive during this highly unusual holiday season.

Upcoming Outdoor & Virtual Events:

Joslyn Castle Neighborhood Association’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony—December 1, 2021, 6PM

Get into the spirit with a live-streamed tree lighting ceremony on Joslyn Castle's Facebook Live! Then sing along with mezzo-soprano Kaitlin Zardetto (from home!) as she performs holiday favorites in the decked halls of the Castle.

Virtual Historic Home Tour—January 9th, 2021

Tour Joslyn Castle, Brandeis Mansion, the Farnsworth Home, and Chiodo palace all from the comfort of your own home!
