What is Christmas at the Inn?
Christmas at the Inn, formally Christmas at Granny’s Craft Show is a Glen Allen tradition that started in the 1980’s. For 6 days The Virginia Cliffe Inn will be
filled with a unique collection from over 60 area crafters, artists and bakers to get the holiday season started in style.
The Show started in 1980. Margaret and Janice Clifton had a craft store in Laurel Park, Virginia, called Granny’s Attic, selling crafts on consignment. They also had a wonderful home with lots of space, so they decided to decorate it for Christmas, fill it with crafts and invite the public. The first year, about 850 people attended. The Cliftons were so surprised at the attendance and had so much fun, they decided to repeat the event, and it grew by word of mouth each year. By the third year, over 3,000 people attended.
