Tree-raising Ceremony

Included with estate admission. 10:00 a.m.

Join us to celebrate this annual Biltmore tradition where our tallest tree comes up Approach Road to Biltmore House by horse-drawn carriage, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Claus.  Watch as over 30 employees help raise the tree in the Banquet Hall, carefully avoiding tapestries, chandeliers, and antique flags.

Candlelight, firelight, and live music bring holiday warmth to the extravagant holiday décor of Biltmore House, creating an evening to remember. Evening guests can also take advantage of Antler Hill Village & Winery to enjoy free wine tastings. Advance reservations are required for evening visits.

Experience the holidays wreathed with the wonder of Biltmore. Our celebration presents Christmas on a grand scale with more than 40 trees decorated by our talented staff, accented with miles of ribbon, garlands, and lights. Festive menus in our restaurants and holiday wine tastings make for a memorable visit.
