Christmas is definitely a magical time, and there is nothing like visiting Gardner Village during the holidays. Below are a few events they have going on to help you feel the magic this season:


Elf Scavenger HuntThis free scavener hunt is fun for families of all ages. It can even be used as a fun date night activity! Santa's elves are busy all over Gardner Village, and it's your job to find them. When you are finished, take your completed form to Naborhood Bakery for a special treat.

Find The Elf On The Shelf, hidden at Storybook Nook and Santa's ToysThese two stores are our favorite for finding unique gifts, toys and books! During December, they have The Elf On The Shelf hidden in the store; he's in a different spot each day, so make sure you look for him each time you visit!

Cooking Classes at TasteTaste Culinary Boutique offers a variety of cooking classes to help you with your holiday entertaining. You can view a complete list of classes on their website. Upcoming classes include Holiday Entertaining With CheerNew Year New You and Chinese New Year.  

Knitting Classes Kamille's is your go-to place for all things warm and comfy! You can stop by and purchase something already made, like scarves and mittens, or you can buy the materials to make them yourself. If you don't know how to knit, but want to learn, Kamille's has classes for that

Treats There is never a shortage of treats at Gardner Village! With shops like Sweet Afton's CandyNaborhood Bakery and Taste, you will want to try them all! This is a great place to purchase treats for neighbor gifts or stocking stuffers.

Take the family out to dinner Archibald's is a great place to take your family for a fabulous holiday meal after a day of shopping. With appetizers like fried green tomatoes, breaded avocados, popcorn shrimp and brushcetta, these are unlike the "cookie cutter" selection of appetizers you will find at other restaurants.  

You can view a complete list of their events, and details about all of their shops, on the Gardner Village website.
