Although snow is still a distant thought at this time of the year, Christmas spirit is in the air as the 2022 Christmas Fantasy House, a 29-year holiday tradition in the Greater Milwaukee area, prepares to open Saturday, October 29. This year’s Christmas Fantasy House, located in Milwaukee on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, will welcome visitors through Sunday, November 6 (closed Wednesday, November 2). All proceeds will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin.

Nearly 30 area decorators will transform this 25,000 sq. ft., historical mansion into a Christmas wonderland of sparkling lights and decoration sure to dazzle guests. Guests will also enjoy the Holiday Boutique, Sweet Shoppe, Silent Auction and large selection of raffle baskets.

“The Ronald McDonald House is such a special place and plays a vital role for families dealing with critical medical situations,” Homeowner, Andy Nunemaker shared. “It is an honor to be involved with the Christmas Fantasy House this year. It is such a fun undertaking supporting a worthwhile cause.”

In addition, the organizers will showcase the “Festival of Trees,” during which guests purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win either the decorations on the tree or a decorated wreath.

“We are grateful that Mr. Nunemaker has agreed to open his home for the Christmas Fantasy House this year and thankful for our continued partnership with the dedicated volunteer committee who make this spectacular event possible,” said Ann Petrie, President & CEO for Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin. “The proceeds from the event will jump start our season of giving and help us accomplish our mission to keep families together and promote the health and well-being of children.”

Advance tickets are available for $25 at participating Pick ‘n Save (Kroger), Metro Market, numerous other ticket sites, or online. A complete listing of ticket outlets is available at To schedule a group tour, please email
