Manor House Candlelight Tours

christmas applesDuring the month of November, staff and volunteers will be decorating each of the eight principle rooms of the Manor House by theme and color, including natural flora and greenery inspired by the Foys’ Colonial through Victorian family history – with a few contemporary flourishes to echo the family’s four centuries in coastal North Carolina. 

With special care and attention to the adornment of each room, the front parlor will feature a magnificent live tree, the morning room will reflect the American spirit of red, white and blue, and the children’s room is always a favorite among young and old alike.  Who can resist candy canes and stockings hung with care?

Advanced reservations are required. Tours are limited to 15 guests.  Admission price is $15.00 per person, and includes refreshments in the courtyard after the tour. Ticket price also includes admission to the Star of  Wonder, Star of Night festivities on the grounds.

Guided Candlelight Tours begin in the Manor House basement on the hour at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., 7 p.m., and 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

A Dickens Holiday

Down with Black Friday, go back in time before it existed with us and Maya decked out in Dickens style! On Friday, Nov. 25, 2016, Historic Downtown Fayetteville will again be transformed into a unique and wonderful experience. So roll back the clock with us ­for A Dickens Holiday from 1 to 9 p.m.!

Horse-drawn carriages roll down Hay Street carrying shoppers the old-fashioned way, past merchants’ windows adorned with beautiful Victorian holiday decorations, past artisans and vendors of all sorts of delightful treats. Joyful children pose with Father Christmas for memory-laden pictures. The smells of cider and gingerbread permeate the chilly air. And there is Ebenezer Scrooge himself, pursued by the ghost of Jacob Marley.

As darkness approaches and the clock reaches 5 p.m., townspeople gather in front of the Arts Council for the candlelight procession to the Market House, followed by fireworks. After the fireworks, the festivities continue until 9 p.m.
