American Christmas Holiday Experience in Mount Vernon
We have to admit, we are getting very excited about the upcoming holiday season. One very special experience to get on your radar is American Christmas. Synonymous with the holiday décor on display in New York City including the Rockefeller Center Channel Gardens Angels, Macy’s Department Store, the Cartier building on 5th Avenue, and Radio City Musical Hall.
American Christmas, the company that decorates these iconic buildings and many more, will open the doors to their 110,000-square-foot warehouse in Mount Vernon to the public for the first time this November.
The American Christmas experience runs from November 4th-December 23rd where you and your family can see dazzling displays, lights, decor, and much more! Tickets are available online and 100% of the ticket sales donated to several Mount Vernon nonprofit organizations. This includes The Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club, North East STEM Academy, and The Youth Community Outreach Program.
During your visit, you and your family can enjoy a breathtaking stroll through Santa’s Village with over 50,000 twinkling lights, larger-than-life displays, several Dickens interactive vignettes for photos (including a 25-foot illuminated reindeer), 50 mesmerizing animatronics, and more. A very special part of the experience includes access to a section of the warehouse where this year’s New York City decorations are being created and assembled.
The tour ends with a stop in the charming American Christmas shop. Here, you’ll discover a unique collection of holiday ornaments and decorations. This includes one-of-a-kind vintage decorations as well as items from television shows and pieces that were a part of department store displays. The pop-up will be open from November 1st through December 22nd and new items will be added daily.
