Appalachian Christmas and Tinsel Trail at Shelton House

December 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Shelton House – Museum of NC Handicrafts in Waynesville, NC will once again conclude their events for our 41st year in a magical way.  On Sunday, December 5, we will host our annual Appalachian Family Christmas event and open the Tinsel Trail for a month-long opportunity to safely get outside and enjoy the Holiday Lights and Decorations.  Santa Claus will visit on December 5 from 5pm to 7pm distance and hot chocolate and treats can be enjoyed.  Holiday tunes will be played from the front porch of the house so gather on the front lawn and sing along.

For its third season, Shelton House will host its “Appalachian Family Christmas Event” and “Opening of the Tinsel Trail” with Live Holiday music on the front porch of the house, hot chocolate and goodies, beautiful lights, decorations, and a visit from the jolly old man himself…Santa Claus.
Bring the kids for a Holiday Photo Op in a real sleigh with Santa by the side. Don’t forget the letters to Santa as well, as they will be collected and “Reindeer Expressed” to the Elves working in the North Pole. Still looking for those Special Holiday Gifts? The Shelton Carriage House Gift Shop will be open that night from 5pm tp 7pm and Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am – 3pm through December 17 with incredible handcrafted gifts locally made by our very own WNC Artists! You wont believe the selection!
