Holiday Bazaar & Tea at the Cloisters

Enjoy the holiday tradition of Black Friday shopping a little differently this year with an old-fashioned Holiday Bazaar and Tea inside the historic Cloisters castle.

Holiday Bazaar & Tea at the Cloisters takes place Friday, November 25 and Saturday, November 26 from 11am-5pm. The Holiday Bazaar features Maryland crafters selling handmade items.  This is the perfect place to get everyone on your gift list uniquely designed and crafted items. Plus, children are invited to participate in a free homemade gingerbread house cookie decorating workshop with Chef Charlotte Galley of the Baltimore Chef Shop. Inside the “Tea Room,” visitors can enjoy tea, finger sandwiches, fresh fruit, scones, cheese and an assortment of pastries and desserts. The bazaar is free to attend, but the cost of the tea is $30.

The Cloisters is managed by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts and is located at 10440 Falls Road, Lutherville, MD.

Those interested in making a reservation for the tea should contact the Cloisters directly at:  aapplegarth@promotionandarts.com  or mblake@promotionandarts.com  or call 410-821-7448.

The Cloisters was bequeathed to the City of Baltimore by its original owners, Baltimore natives Sumner A. Parker and G. Dudrea Parker.  Inspired by extensive travel throughout Europe, as well as the United States, the Parkers built the castle as their summer home.  Although the structure itself only dates from 1932, many of the architectural elements are far older, lending the house an ancient feel.  The Cloisters features a four-story spiral stair tower, chapel, cloistered garden, windmill, elaborate stained-glass windows & doors, multiple fireplaces, hand-painted murals, ornamental ironwork, balconies and much more.
