  • Create and wear your own kokoshnik (lady’s headdress) or Russian gentleman’s winter hat to dress in the style of boyars (old Russian nobels).
  • Enjoy the playful antics of mummers parading in animal costumes and discover what the New Year has in store from fortunetellers strolling the estate, presented by Happenstance Theater
  • Enjoy lively music performed by Samovar Russian Folk Music Ensemble.
  • Listen to enchanting winter tales from Russia.


All of Hillwood's 2014 festivals are supported by a grant from the Sally Foss and James Scott Hill Foundation.
