Date: December 17, 18, 19
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join actors in period costume as they take you back to the Christmas of 1782. This lively event celebrates the return of Arthur Middleton from Philadelphia, the end of the Revolutionary War in the South and the departure from Charleston of the British troops. Guests will feast on early American cuisine from the colonial period in the Pavilion following the presentation. One modern version of an old dish was inspired by former Chef-in-residence and James Beard award winner, Edna Lewis. Torch-lit gardens, warm fires, dramatic scenes and presentations, and a chef and attendant served buffet will make Grand Illumination a memorable part of your holiday season.

The evening's menu includes Edna Lewis' Beef Stew, Whole Roasted Chicken Carving Station, Grilled Pork Loin, Middleton Place Farmers Salad, Buttered Green Beans, Rosemary Potatoes, Roasted Honey Carrots, Creamed Corn, Seasonal Cobbler and Custard.
