Garfield Farm in Campton Hills bake sale on, but weather cancels other Dec. 1 events

CAMPTON HILLS – With the exception of a bake sale, the weather has cancelled the Dec. 1 festivities for Candlelight at the Inn at Garfield Farm Museum on Garfield Road north of Route 38, Campton Hills.

"A quick drive by to stop in at Burr House to buy some great Christmas baked goods will be offered, but we do not have safe parking for 30 volunteer cars and another 60 visitor cars to hold our Candlelight," a news release stated. "Odds are Sunday will have to be cancelled as well."

The museum suggests calling or emailing to see if there are still baked goods on Sunday, including Inglenook Pantry's tea breads. All buyers of baked goods on Saturday will receive a complimentary homemade Illinois bicentennial cookie, an offer repeated Dec. 2, the eve of the Illinois Bicentennial.

"Just park on the gravel drive and we will also have the north gate open to drive all the way through," the release stated. "Peeks at the 1906 dairy barn may be offered, based on conditions."

For information, call 630-584-8485 or email info@garfieldfarm.org.

The Candlelight at the Inn and Bicentennial Eve events originally were scheduled from 3 to 7 p.m. Dec. 1 and 2.
