Biltmore Village – Celebrating the history, culture, arts, and architectural treasures for which the village has become renowned, “A Dickens Christmas” is scheduled for Friday & Saturday, December 2nd & 3rd, 2022. For the last 33 years, this annual holiday event has been delighting children of all ages and bringing the spirit of the holiday season to bear in Historic Biltmore Village. The magic and charm of Historic Biltmore Village, filled with Dickens carolers and lit with holiday lights after dark, is truly unparalleled.
This year: A Dickens Christmas will also feature a holiday market with live music, activities for kids, and locally made goods; located in the Spartina 449 parking lot (4 Swan St).
Over two dozen roving Dickens-themed acts will be performed throughout Historic Biltmore Village, including the chestnut roaster, as well as dance groups, instrumental acts, and other roving entertainment.
Led by a holiday bagpiper, Santa and Mrs. Claus will parade from the holiday market to The Village Green to light a fully decorated 15+ foot Christmas Tree at 6:30 PM on Friday, December 2nd. We invite everyone to come and visit, warm their hearts, and get into the holiday spirit.
