We take jolly to a whole new level with charming, small-town magic, a host of cozy accommodations, festive events, and plenty of opportunities for you to get out and explore acres of a winter wonderland, jingle bells optional.

Be sure to discover the sweet treats and fabulous toys in historic downtown Brevard. Decked out with holiday magic throughout the season, downtown Brevard is a fantastic place to do your shopping at any number of our charming local shops, boutiques and galleries. 

Fans of the Tannenbaum

If you can’t see the forest for all the Christmas Trees, you find your own at one of our local Christmas tree farms. You can get some wild, bright, mid 20th century ideas for decorating at ATOM (the Aluminum Tree and Ornament Museum), or if you prefer a different vintage, the Allison-Deaver House has all the latest in holiday decorating trends from about 1850.

Make Your List (Check It Twice)

When it comes to shopping, Santa could do worse than visiting our many local stores, boutiques, galleries, and outfitters.  In downtown Brevard, you will experience a storybook setting all decked out in lights, magic, and plenty of holiday cheer. While you’re there, enjoy some beloved seasonal traditions like the 50th Annual Christmas Parade and the Light Up The Night Holiday Stroll both on December 4.

Are you feeling lucky? Beginning November 29, the Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce will launch its Annual Holiday Giveaway featuring two fun opportunities to win great prizes while finishing up your gift buying. For more information click here.
