Mistletoe & Martinis

It is with a heavy heart that the Deering Estate Foundation formally announces the cancellation of the 2020 Mistletoe and Martinis holiday event, originally scheduled for Friday, December 11th.  This decision was made with an abundance of caution for our guests, vendors, volunteers, and staff as number of COVID 19 infections is currently on the rise.   These are incredibly challenging times, particularly as we try to plan for large events and keep everyone safe.  We understand and share the disappointment and can only hope in the promise of a healthier and safer 2021.  Please accept our heartfelt best wishes to you and yours for health, happiness and joy during this holiday season!
