About Deck the Halls

hanoversafeplacesignDeck the Halls has been a major fundraising event for more than 10 years.  Proceeds from Deck the Halls always go to entities benefiting women and children in crisis.

The event is a benefit for Hanover Safe Place in Ashland. Hanover Safe Place is a non-profit organization providing confidential services to persons who experience domestic or sexual violence in Hanover County, VA and the Town of Ashland since the early 1990s.  Included in these services are a free and confidential 24-hour crisis hot line, emergency shelter, support groups and case management.  Last year, Hanover Safe Place served over 2,600 individuals in Hanover County.

How does Deck the Halls work?  For a small entry donation, you will receive 3 tickets for hardware (wreath forms, centerpiece bowls, etc) and 3 tickets for bows!  We have experts to help you every step of the way.  Create wreaths, swags, boxwood circles, table toppers, candle surrounds and more!  Our fresh cut greenery includes pine, cedar, hemlock, fraser fir, holly, nandina and boxwood all cut from historic farms in Hanover County.  You are also welcome to bring your own, recycled wreath forms!

We have everything you need to make your one-of-a-kind holiday decorations–bows, wreath forms, wire, clippers and cutters.  Table experts from the area garden clubs provide hands-on guidance.

The Barn

Visit the toasty warm Big Red Barn to enjoy FREE, wonderful holiday sweets, hot beverages and holiday music.

Not feeling particularly crafty this year?  For a small donation, you can purchase beautiful fresh decorations created by our experts.

Rain, shine, hot, cold – we’ve got you covered!  This is a child-friendly Event.  Parking is located 1 mile from Pine Grove Farm at Henry Clay Elementary School, 310 South James Street, Ashland, VA 23005.

A “Deck the Halls Trolley” will run every 15 minutes from Henry Clay Elementary School to take participants to and from the event. You can opt to drop off your carload and then go and park. Handicap parking available at Pine Grove Farm.
