Christmas at Bok Tower Gardens and Pinewood Estate is an annual Tampa Bay celebration you don't want to miss. 

The 20 room, 1932 Mediterranean-style estate’s decorations change each Christmas, and no two years are ever the same. The historic home will be decked out in holiday cheer from November 24 - January 7.  


Children are invited to participate in a fun hunt for a family of Pinewood Christmas squirrels. 

The Holiday Home Tour takes a musical turn celebrating Charles Austin Buck’s passion for music and the sounds of the 1930’s. The Buck family is caught up in the fever of the Jazz Age and is excited to share their fully decorated home for the season. Experience the sounds of the era as Pinewood Estate is merry and bright for the holidays!

The ever-popular Holiday Home Tour at Pinewood Estate is the highlight of Bok Tower Gardens’ season of holiday-themed events, but the Christmas fun doesn’t stop there.
