A Merry Little Christmas Festival: Dec 7th-9th

Poplar Grove Plantation in Wilmington, NC, presents A Merry Little Christmas Festival, a European Winter Bazaar experience featuring arts and craft vendors, a bonfire for roasting marshmallows, visits with Santa, lawn games, and outdoors screenings of The Polar Express, A Christmas Story, and Elf.

The grounds and barnyard will be decorated with seasonal vignettes and the manor house will be open for evening candlelit tours. Between 5-8 pm Friday, noon-8 pm Saturday, and noon – 5 pm Sunday, the grounds will be bursting with arts, crafts and gift vendors, spectacularly lit with a Santa’s Workshop for children both naughty and nice, a mailbox for posting those letters to Santa, outdoor Christmas movie favorites for the entire family to enjoy, as well as food trucks and concessions.
