Charles Dickens in western NC??


A Christmas Carol


Yes, it is Dickens in Asheville!! For the weekend of Dec. 4- Dec.6, Biltmore Village will be transformed into a Victorian Dickens-esque village, complete with songs in the street and roasting chestnuts for the Biltmore Village Dickens Festival. Bring your kids and giggle while pretending together to be in Dickens' A Christmas Carol, even enjoying pieces of the tale put on by local performers.
Biltmore Village is well-known to those living in Asheville or those returning for a visit. There is much to see and do in this part of town while staying in one of our Asheville vacation rentals. The infamous Biltmore House gives the area it's name, and Carolina Mornings offers you two free tickets to Biltmore for a visit to the historic (and gigantic!) site when staying with us in a few properties. You can't miss Biltmore Village during the holidays as a guest in our town!!
The village is also a great place to find gifts, from the small, locally-owned boutiques to the larger shopping center full of name brands. During the Dickens Festival, the shops will be open later and the employees will don Victorian- era garb. What a great place to appease both your need for holiday shopping and your child's need for a fun time?!
