'Tis the season for enjoying Biltmore Estate's magnificent holiday splendor during Christmas at Biltmore, Nov. 3-Jan. 7. Purchase tickets for a daytime and/or evening visit — or try your luck at winning a pair of tickets to the daytime event by filling out the form below.
The 2017 theme, “A Vanderbilt Christmas,” features the gilded age and all of its grandeur. Enjoy 55 decorated Christmas trees adorned with thousands of sparkling ornaments inside Biltmore House, as well as 30,000 lights and 150 candles. You'll get to see lush holiday blooms in the conservatory and smell fresh evergreens from decadently decorated wreaths and garlands. Sample Christmas wine at the winery and treat yourself to lunch or an early dinner at Village Social, Bistro, Cedric's Tavern or Deerpark Restaurant (which also offers brunch).
If you decide to stay for Biltmore's Candlelight Christmas Evenings, which requires a separate ticket, experience the beauty of a lit 55-foot-tall Norway spruce encircled by 20 other illuminated evergreens on the front lawn, as well as 135,000 LED and mini lights sparkling around the estate.
New this year, Antler Hill Village features a constellation of lights as dusk descends. This must-see experience features “waterfall” lights cascading from treetops; stars and orbs draping tree branches; miniature lights outlining archways and buildings; and glowing ornaments in the Village Green illuminating holiday evenings.
Buy your tickets for either or both events seven or more days in advance and save $10 on each admission.
