Bensenville, Ill.— The Bensenville Park District postponed its Farmside Christmas from the first Sunday of December to 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, December 9, at Fischer Farm, 16W680 Old Grand Avenue, Bensenville. The change was made due to inclement weather.
New in 2023 is Subie’s Holiday Workshop, sponsored by Grand Subaru, where attendees can work on holiday crafts and children can enter the holiday coloring contest. Two prize packages will be awarded. Grand Subaru is also giving away a commemorative holiday ornament to families while supplies last.
Visitors will be able to get into the holiday spirit with festive music and other activities and attractions that include horse and wagon rides and the live farm animals before warming up around a bonfire with hot chocolate and treats.
Santa will be on hand to greet patrons in the Granary Barn, where patrons can get their pictures taken! Visit Mrs. Claus inside the farm house and pick up a cookie, check out the dining room Christmas train display and visit the gift shop for additional holiday purchases.
Admission and parking are FREE. Accessible parking is available on site. For more information about the event, including a schedule, map and directions, visit BvilleParks.org/farmsidechristmas.
