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, and then open their homes to share their own personal family traditions and decorating styles with the public. The Tour is usually the firt or second weekend in December, featuring 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. The self-guided walking tours are from 4-8 p.m.
