Press Release from Cantigny Regarding the December Holiday Show

“As you might have heard, we’re planning something big for the holiday season, “Christmas at Cantigny,” a first-time event featuring festive light installations in the gardens, ice skating, and walk-throughs inside the renovated McCormick House. Spaces inside the Visitors Center will support the month-long celebration, which begins on December 1st.

For more than 20 years, members of the Northern Illinois LEGO Train Club (NILTC) have generously staged a wonderful exhibition inside the Cantigny Visitors Center. The two-day show, NILTC’s largest of the year, grew into a holiday tradition for local families, its creative displays attracting thousands of LEGO fans annually. To make way for “Christmas at Cantigny,” NILTC is electing to take a year off with an eye toward returning to Cantigny in November 2024. The new show dates will better accommodate both parties.

We and our friends at NILTC will miss bringing you the “LEGO Train Show” this year. Cantigny and the club members appreciate your understanding and look forward to the show’s return next year. We invite you to enjoy “Christmas at Cantigny,” perhaps another holiday tradition in the making.”
