Save the Date because WE’RE BACK!

Thank you for continuing to make Old Northwood’s Candlelight Tour one of the top ten holiday events in Palm Beach County. Your continued support is very important to us! It is our hope that you and your families have remained safe and healthy and are ready to experience the all new “Old Northwood 33rd Annual Candlelight Festival”! After our hiatus last year and to celebrate our Centennial Anniversary, Historic Old Northwood is bringing our guests a very special Festival this year that is sure to put some special sparkle in your 2021 Holiday Season!

This year we will be hosting an all-day event within the neighborhood that will incorporate the historic homes to tour in the evening, the enchanting gardens of our elite neighborhood in the afternoon and a full holiday festival street fair all day. We will have over 30 merchandise vendors for you to start your holiday shopping, 6 of West Palm Beach’s best restaurants serving their specialties of the house, a biergarten tent of craft brews, wine, champagne, spirit tastings from local distilleries, marching bands, a choir, Christmas carolers and so much more!


The Old Northwood Candlelight Festival will be held on December 4, 2021, from 1pm- 9pm. Tickets will be on sale October 1st through Eventbrite and as you know we always sell out quickly! So, plan ahead...

Also upgraded this year is our VIP Experience that will include a private VIP hospitality tent, specially curated food, wine and spirits, enjoy LIVE entertainment and an exclusive access to the air-conditioned upgraded restrooms and the ever popular “Jump to Head of the Line” access to our homes and gardens. There will only be 250 VIP experience tickets sold.

Once again, we are teaming up with West Palm Beach Police and Fire Departments to collect toys and bikes for the children in the community so that every child can experience the magic of Santa Claus. In addition, we also provide a portion of our event funds to purchase gift cards so that each family is guaranteed a holiday meal. In the past we’ve raised over $7,000.00 in toys and gift cards and this year we are hoping to break that record! Please plan to bring an unwrapped toy to the event, you will be rewarded with one voucher to one of our restaurant partners of your choice during the event.

The culmination of our Candlelight Festival will be our annual Tree Lighting with Santa Clause’s arrival via West Palm Beach Fire Truck, Station #3!

**This event will follow strict Covid protocols as set forth by the CDC, the City of West Palm Beach and the County of Palm Beach**. Masks will be required at all times and must while touring inside the homes. This is for the protection of you, our guests, and our homeowners who are generously opening up their homes and our 300 volunteers.

We’ve missed seeing you and we’re excited to invite you back this year for a bigger and better event!
