Portland, OR. The Pittock Mansion is open for visitors and volunteers are planning for the annual Christmas celebration. It will feature, “The wonderful world of animals” with this year’s theme Critters Make Merry. From reindeer and polar bears to lions and mice and a few in between, volunteer decorators transform the Mansion’s rooms into enchanting animal havens.

Tickets for this year’s event are limited due to capacity restrictions. All tickets must be purchased online in advance by selecting a date and start time. The first timed entry begins at 10am with last timed entry starting at 3:30pm.
Certain permanent exhibit features will not be viewable so that the Mansion can highlight decorations along the one-way viewing path.
Tickets are on sale now at pittockmansion.org/events.

Face masks are required for the duration of the visit and additional safety measures include open window ventilation.

Pittock Mansion is closed Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and on Christmas Day.
