Join us this December for a unique and festive holiday experience!

It’s a colorful, magical, wonderland tea party at the 24th Annual Teddy Bear Tea, where snowflakes and twinkle lights hover overhead, sugar plum fairies sparkle nearby, and bears and other woodland animals share in the joys of the season with you and your family. Hundreds of families flock to our door for this amazing event, and tickets sell out every year — often in less than a day!

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 a festive photo opportunity and fun with the sugar plum fairy (courtesy of the team at Happily Ever Laughter)! 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.

Bears in the boutique await their new owners at the annual Teddy Bear Tea event.

Kept in Time PhotographyThe 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.
