During Candlelight Christmas Evenings, Biltmore House greets you with the soft glow of luminaries and twinkling lights on a towering Norway spruce on the Front Lawn. Inside, candlelight, firelight, and holiday lights reflect on thousands of ornaments decorating dozens of Christmas trees throughout the grand rooms. Live performances of traditional Christmas music add to your evening visit. Your self-guided Candlelight visit also includes daytime admission to Antler Hill Village & Winery, gardens, shops, and restaurants with special holiday menus (additional cost) on the day of your evening visit or the day after.
