ABOUT THE EVENT / PROMOTION

Enjoy an authentic Victorian Christmas cooking experience at Dundurn Castle. Your culinary journey begins as you are greeted by costumed cooks who lead you below stairs to Dundurn’s 19th century kitchen for a unique and entertaining experience preparing seasonal desserts. Then, take a guided tour of Dundurn’s rooms decorated for the season before finishing off with a tasting of your treats. 

Event Location

Once home to Sir Allan Napier MacNab, railway magnate, lawyer and Premier of the United Canadas (1854-1856) and his family, today Dundurn Castle tells the story of the family who lived above stairs and the servants who lived and worked below stairs to support their affluent lifestyle. Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall is the museum’s Patron and the great, great, great granddaughter of Sir Allan MacNab.

William Reid was Sir Allan’s gardener for over 25 years. Explore the lovingly restored two-acre Historic Kitchen Garden where costumed staff grow over 200 heirloom varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers for use in the historic kitchen. Open mid-May through mid-October. Enjoy free garden tours in July and August.

The 1870’s Coach House is home to The Castle Shop featuring a variety of Canadian handmade crafts, souvenirs and special gifts.
