A daytime, town-wide event that is great fun for the kids, and just what you need during the hectic holiday season. Slow down, stroll Main Street, visit the decorated buildings, and sit & chat by a fire with our interpreters. Learn how this remote part of Carolina created an environment of celebration and reflection in the solitude of this rural landscape. A Moravian Christmas in North Carolina has a distinctive southern quality. A slight nip in the air, an abundance of pine & magnolia leaves, the smell of beeswax candles, intricate putz, decorated pyramid trees, and of course baked treats straight out of the beehive oven.
Plan to visit with St. Nick in his very special Workshop in the Butner Hat Shop. Tell him what you would like for Christmas, take pictures all while you warm yourself next to the cozy fireplace. There will be a St. Nick at the Vogler House for those with special needs.
