Get into the Holiday Spirit at The Frick Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is home to many winter traditions. One local favorite and our must-do winter tradition is visiting The Frick Pittsburgh. From the historic home of the Frick family and the 5 plus acres of gorgeous gardens to the truly awe-worthy art exhibitions, The Frick is absolutely Pittsburgh’s hidden gem!

The Frick’s Clayton Holiday tours are such a site to see! The Clayton Mansion is lavishly decorated with holiday splendor that is reminiscent of the 1900s. General admission is only $15 and the celebrations last up until January 6th.

Plus, every Friday evening, The Frick hosts Holiday Harmonies! A trio of carolers strolls through the Frick grounds singing traditional holiday songs up until the last Friday of the month. The wonderful carols paired with brilliantly decorated lights, it’s a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit!
