Biltmore Candlelight Christmas Evenings

December 1 - December 31

George Vanderbilt’s Biltmore House opens at night during the holidays for Biltmore Candlelight Christmas Evenings. The grand fireplaces are aglow along with candles that accentuate the delicate ornaments and priceless treasures visitors find in the 250-room French chateau each holiday on the estate. Marvel at thousands of lights, dozens of Christmas trees and elaborate decorations and the 60-foot Norway spruce on the front lawn, the decorated Antler Hill Village. Enjoy wonderful food and wine and do your Christmas shopping in a place where unique gifts and shops abound. Take in holiday music performed by choirs and soloists, see a six-foot long gingerbread village with a replica of the Biltmore House, hear Christmas stories, see an original copy of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and view vintage Christmas items and Vanderbilt-era mementos.
