The annual Holiday Tree Lighting at Biltmore Park Town Square is happening on December 3, 2022. This family-friendly event will feature kid-friendly crafts and activities, stiltwalkers, hula-hooping elves, a wandering magician, a photo booth, and visits with Santa. Stroll the boulevard, sip hot cocoa, and experience the season’s magic! The event kicks off at 2:30 p.m. and concludes with the highly anticipated tree lighting at 6:00 p.m.
Join us in helping to ensure members of the WNC community have enough to eat this holiday season! In partnership with MANNA Food Bank, we are hosting a food drive that will kick off at the Holiday Tree Lighting event and run until December 19th. We will be collecting healthy, non-perishable food items, and personal hygiene products, which will be delivered to MANNA Food Bank, weighed, and then distributed to those in need across 16 WNC counties. Collection barrels will be set up among the activities at the event on December 3rd and afterward inside the lobbies of REI Co-op and Regal Biltmore Grande through December 19th. Please help us reach our goal of collecting 500 lbs of food!
