A unique and festive holiday experience December 1st & 2nd, 2018!
It’s a colorful, winter wonderland at the 23rd Annual Teddy Bear Tea, where snowflakes hover overhead, evergreen trees twinkle with lights, and bears and other woodland animals share in the joys of the season with you and your family.
Enjoyed by everyone from tiniest tot to the tallest and wisest of grown-ups, Teddy Bear Tea, held annually the first weekend in December, has been a tradition for over 20 years, gathering the community together during the holidays and raising much-needed funds for our nonprofit organization.
Guests share in a variety of savories, sandwiches and sweet treats, as well as a visit to “Bearland” for story time, crafts holiday-themed photo opportunities, and a special visit from our festive holiday elf! Kids can wear their “fancy dress,” practice party etiquette and drink real (decaffinated) tea or juice in china cups. Enter our raffle for a chance to win fun prizes, and purchase items from the Holiday Boutique. And all kids take home party favors.
Two fabulous professional caterers will be providing the tea-time buffet, with Walnut Creek’s very own Sunrise Bistro & Catering serving guests on Saturday and Oakland-based Carrie Dove Catering & Events serving guests on Sunday.
The annual Teddy Bear Tea event is made possible through the support of our sponsors and many volunteers. Proceeds go directly to support the education and garden programs at The Gardens at Heather Farm.
