Holiday Delights: Edenton’s Christmas Candlelight Tour


Annual Candlelight Tour Shines Bright During Holiday Season

Every winter, the Christmas spirit on display in the public power community of Edenton makes the season brighter for all who venture from far and wide to this picturesque seaside haven. The return of the Edenton Christmas Candlelight Tour is always highly anticipated – both by newcomers and those who have made it part of their holiday tradition, alike.

It’s no wonder. This is an event that never disappoints, because no two are ever quite the same. And that’s by design. Each year, a different neighborhood is featured, with those chosen for this rare honor literally spending months in planning and preparation, the participants determined to get everything just right. Welcoming the long-awaited moment when they will finally open their homes up, inviting onlookers to take part in a unique holiday experience that is sure to dazzle and delight them, one and all.

This year’s tour takes place December 13th and 14th, and will include homes in historic downtown Edenton, including The Cupola House, The Barker House and the Historic 1767 Chowan County Courthouse, which are all decorated using only natural, historically accurate decorations.
