Tour Info

2023 tours start November 11th and will run through December 22nd.

Your tour experience starts with a cup of hot cocoa and fun facts about our building’s history and why we’re known as ‘the sweetest corner in town’. Tour guests will see the candy cane making process in full swing, learn how they’re made, and get in on the candy cane curling action! You’ll get to shape your own cane into the traditional hook, or any shape your imagination can create!

And don’t forget to wear your festive Christmas spirit!
