NEW: Christmas in the Quarter

For the first time ever the Colonial Industrial Quarter is illuminated thanks to Albarell Electric Inc.!

Join us in 2021 starting in November!
Check back for full schedule.

The Historic Colonial Industrial Quarter is the perfect setting for holiday festivities. Join us on weekends in November and December for some holiday fun for everyone, including your furry friends! Activities include pop-up shopping, Putz and art exhibits, family photo opportunities, live music, food trucks, an outdoor winter bar, and family activities and workshops.

To light up your holiday season, the historic buildings will be illuminated for the first time ever each night at dusk.

In this season of giving, we ask that you contribute a suggested donation for admission to the Christmas in the Quarter: Your contribution will help HBMS keep the lights on literally and figuratively as well as support the family-friendly activities throughout the weekend.
