A Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas In Hendersonville

Experience the hospitality and warmth of a Blue Ridge Mountain Christmas with Home for the Holidays in Hendersonville. This popular series of holiday events kicked off Thanksgiving weekend and continues through the New Year.

Main Street shopkeepers festoon their storefronts with decorations, while a downtown skating rink is open from Dec. 18–Jan. 1 offering a winter wonderland of activity.

The rink features synthetic “ice” that allows for skating in any weather. The smooth surface is ideal for beginners, yet authentic enough for seasoned skaters. The skating area has increased this year, plus two curling lanes have been added.

Other activities at the rink include a fire pit for roasting marshmallows, Christmas-themed cutouts for family photos and wagons picking up passengers for rides through town to admire the lights. Santa will be on the Visitor Center stage Dec. 21-23 listening to wish lists and posing for photos.

The Flat Rock Playhouse is the officially designated State Theater of North Carolina and it will present two-holiday productions. “A Flat Rock Playhouse Christmas” is an original musical revue, and “Junie B. in Jingle Bells Batman Smells” is an endearing kids’ show based on the book series by Barbara Park. 

Other activities include greenery markets, the great cookie caper and “Holidays at the Movies” performed by the Hendersonville Symphony Orchestra.

Several restaurants serve special holiday menus throughout the season, including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Reservations recommended.
