Event Details

Join The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park in celebrating the Hemingway Family’s tradition of generosity on December 26th!

In medieval times on the day after Christmas, nobles presented gifts to people who lived on their land. Their gifts, intended to welcome outsiders as family, were presented in boxes, hence the name of the day. Traditional English music and food will entertain guests. 

Once again, the Foundation is proud to partner with Books to Devour, which distributes reading material to food pantry patrons and builds community through literature and learning. Donations of books will be accepted at the Hemingway Birthplace and Museum during the month of December, and donors will receive admission to Boxing Day. Simply bring in your books on or before the day of the event, and receive a coupon for one free admission!
