Cox Farms Day for Candlelighters Families

Come for the whole day or just a few hours and enjoy live music, slides, free apple cider, hay rides and more at our annual DC Candlelighters Day at Cox Farms! This event is open to children in treatment, children off-treatment for 6 months or less, and immediate family members only. 

Please RSVP to DC Candlelighters by email with "Cox Farms" in the subject line; be sure to include the names and ages of all family members attending. We understand that your plans may change due to treatment or other circumstances and are happy to take that into account. Please be respectful of the limits Cox Farms has put in place regarding family size and treatment status, so we can continue to offer this fun event to families in the future.
