Crêpe Day: Celebrate La Chandeleur!


Saturday, February 9, 2019 10:00AM


La Chandeleur, also known as Crêpe Day, marks the halfway point between winter and spring.  In France, families celebrate by eating crêpes, which are round and golden like the springtime sun.

We invite families to celebrate this holiday in festive French fashion amidst Hillwood's magnificent setting and exquisite French treasures.

  • Snack on a tasty treat of sweet crêpes.
  • Hear classic French tales inspired by scenes from La Fontaine fables that are pictured on tapestries covering chairs from France displayed in the mansion.
  • Explore Hillwood's French treasures through docent-led, family-friendly gallery talks and a printed treasure hunt.
  • Decorate a plate with fanciful designs and flourishes inspired by Hillwood's French Sèvres porcelain.
