Frick Art & Historical Center

December 6
Noon – 4 p.m.

Making a stop at The Frick Art & Historical Center has long been a cherished family holiday tradition for so many Pittsburghers, and this Saturday brings one more wonderful reason to visit–the Point Breeze-based destination’s annual family celebration of the season. A free drop-in program for kids of all ages, Cool Yule: Family Fun Day runs from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, December 6th. Participants will meet at The Frick Art Museum.

Get into the spirit as you enjoy imaginative stories, join playful art tours and participate in festive art-making activities at the world-class site, which is all decked out in Victorian decor for the holiday season.

Still have a few people on your shopping list? Construct your very own handmade ornaments and other one-of-a-kind treasures, using a variety of art and craft materials, and then take your creations home to give as special personalized gifts and keepsakes. Discover that the true joy of the holiday season is spending time together, as you make new memories enjoying the merriment amidst The Frick’s enchanting Home for Holidays seasonal decorations and lights.

What did a home look like at Christmastime in 1905? As a special treat for the holidays, attendees can add a Clayton family tour to their Cool Yule experience. Family-friendly tours of Clayton, the historic East End home of the Henry Clay Frick family, will be offered on Dec. 6th at 11:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. Tours are free to children ages 12 and under and to members; regular tour rates apply for all others. Tours are most appropriate for kids ages 6 and up. Advance reservations are required for tours of Clayton.
