Biltmore Village Christmas Special

When fall color fades into the crispness of winter, it’s hard not to get in the holiday spirit here at the Biltmore Village in Asheville, North Carolina. Carolers serenade shoppers on the streets of Biltmore Village, thousands of twinkling lights adorn historic shops and horse-drawn carĀ­riages roll along the streets. The Biltmore Village Dickens Festival, always the first weekend in December, is just one of the ways Asheville celebrates Christmas. Candlelight Christmas Evenings at the estate allow guests to tour the Biltmore House after dark and see it as it would have appeared at the turn of the century.
