You don’t need to be an Instagrammer or a part of any photo club to attend. The event is free and photographers of all levels are welcome!
The mansion will be open for you to explore and snap pictures of our 25+ Christmas Trees, hidden elves and hundreds of feet of garland.
The sun is set to rise at 7:40 am. As always we encourage you to roam the estate and explore all 12 acres.
We will be ready to go with coffee on from Duluth Coffee Company in the lower level of the mansion.
We love to re-share photos from these events on our social media pages! If you are sharing your images on social media please tag @Glensheen and use #glensheenchristmas. (If you do not want your images shared, please let us know.)
A prize for the Best Photo will be awarded! The best photo will win a Glensheen Christmas Candlelight Tour for two.
Public tours of the mansion begin at 9:00 am. Therefore, the event will promptly end and we must exit the mansion at 9:00 am. You are welcome to roam the grounds afterward!
Thank you to our friends at the Duluth Superior Camera Club, Destination Duluth, MNCommunity Duluth and MNCommunity for partnering with us!
Please keep in mind that we will be inside the mansion. Glensheen is a museum and has a “no touching” policy to best preserve the mansion. We know it can be tough as cozy as the Christmas decor makes it feel! Please be mindful of this with tripods and setting up your shot.
Due to the overwhelming interest and capacity in the mansion, we are capping the event at the first 75 people. First come, first serve.
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that this will enhance the experience for those attending the event. We are so thankful for all who are interested in attending!
If you are unable to attend, we recommend visiting on a Sunday during our self-guided tour hours. Reach out to us at 218-726-8925 for more information.
