“I live on Bainbridge and I am a huge fan of Christmas in the Country, primarily the participation by Kathy Countryman. Christmas in the Country is one of those great community traditions that seem rarer with every passing year. It was one of the first things that I enjoyed with my kids when we first moved to the island after ten years in downtown Seattle. They still both remember their first pony ride at Countryman’s Stables – one of my daughters now rides there regularly and I think it was because of one special Christmas afternoon. What I remember best is how nice it felt to drive around this lovely island and see some charming art, listen to various artists, see how many people just donated their time and opened their houses, and feel how special it is to live in a true community as opposed to a specific geographic location.”
Sheila Hughes of One Reel, a nonprofit organization that produces the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle
This rustic family farm compound is a fantastic place for holding events and functions such weddings and fundraisers. During Christmas in the Country you can enjoy music and the happy sounds of Christmas wishes shared with Santa and his elves in Santaland.
