Holiday Open House
December 2-4, 2016 (at most locations)
Join in and celebrate! With map in hand you’ll be guided on a driving tour through the historic Monches and Holy Hill area to visit artist studios, quaint shops, farms and inns.
Friday, December 2nd through Sunday December 4th will mark the 33rd year that artists in the tiny artist community of Monches, 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee, will open their doors and welcome visitors for a weekend of holiday cheer.
The 2015 tour included an artglass studio, a metal sculptor, two jewelry studios, a church hosting a craft sale and the Kettle Moraine Symphony, a rural inn featuring a vineyard with custom seasonal wines and a farm offering fresh handmade wreaths & seasonal greens as well as visiting artists and a farm market. 2016 participants have not been finalized at this time.
The drive-it-yourself tour will take visitors along rustic roads through the scenic area surrounding the renowned Holy Hill Basilica. Refreshments, seasonal music and outdoor bonfires will welcome visitors at several of the stops along the way.
