Concordia University is proud to announce the return of A Manor Christmas! Voted as the second most popular place to be in Ann Arbor during that weekend last year, this new holiday tradition will offer more activities, more vendors, and more Christmas spirit for guests of all ages. Activities include: tours of the historic Earhart mansion decorated for Christmas by professional designers, a unique Festival of Trees, premium artificial pre-lit trees for sale, and a European-style Christmas market.

Tickets are $5.00 for general admission to the Christkindlmarkt and $7 for general admission to the Christkindlmarkt plus self-guided tour of the historic Earhart Manor. The guided tours will run every half hour. Buy your tickets early to secure your desired time. Each tour is expected to sell out. For more information call the Manor Christmas hotline at 734-995-7509. Private group tours of seven or more people are available. Call 734-665-7912 for more information.

Advance tickets are strongly encouraged to avoid long lines. Click here to purchase.

A Manor Christmas is hosted by the Concordia Guild. All proceeds benefit the Concordia Guild Scholarship Fund. Contact us to learn how you or your organization can become involved in A Manor Christmas and help us support more students.
