Stag & Doe nights, feature extended store hours, holiday specials, and complimentary refreshments at many shops. Wednesdays December 1, 8, 15, 22.
Stag & Doe Nights, which is Chestnut Hill’s oldest and most beloved annual tradition, returns this year for the first four Wednesdays in December. For two of those Wednesdays, Dec. 8 and Dec. 22, there will be horse-drawn carriage rides from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. On those nights, there’s also a brass quartet from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Originally conceived back in the 1960s as “Stag Night,” an occasion for men to come out and shop for their wives, girlfriends and mothers, the event has grown into a festive concoction of shopping and socializing which also includes women. Now known as “Stag and Doe” night, the event features extended store hours, holiday specials, and complimentary refreshments at many shops. In past years, many of those refreshments have included wine and cheese, and Chestnut Hillers turn out in force - using it as an opportunity to catch up with friends and neighbors while getting their holiday shopping done.
