Edenton – 36th Annual Christmas Candlelight Tour

Friday December 8
4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Christmas Candlelight Tour is Edenton’s most anticipated event every year. Thousands of visitors come from far and wide to see our hamlet shine! Each year, a neighborhood is chosen, and participants spend months preparing for the visitors. This year, we will be visiting Edenton Bay, a gated community situated on Hayes Plantation, on the water. In addition to the homes in Edenton Bay, several historic buildings “in town” will be on the tour. Especially exciting, our 1825 Chowan County Jail will be open to the public for the first time since it’s renovations began! Be sure to get your tickets today, and don’t wait to book your reservation at one of Edenton’s local Bed and Breakfast locations.

The tour will be held on December 8 and December 9 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Tickets are good for both days of the tour and can be purchased online or at the Penelope Barker House Welcome Center at 505 South Broad Street in Edenton. Tickets are $30.00 plus tax in advance, and $35.00 plus tax on the days of the tour.
