It’s that time of year.
It’s that time of year.


Dear Traveler,
It’s that time of year. I hope you’ve made your list and checked it twice, because Transylvania County is looking pretty nice for the holidays. Get into the holiday spirit here.
This year, we've pulled out all the stops. Lights have been strung. Bells have been rung. Santa Claus is on the move. And if you’re looking to add a little cool to your yule, you have come to the right place. No matter your pleasure, we’ve got a cup of cheer coming your way with events, live music, unforgettable adventures, and all the glad tidings you need to power through to 2023.
Happy Ho-Ho-Ho-Holidays,

 -The Adventurist

Merrily We Go
51st Annual Brevard Christmas Parade and Holiday Stroll
Downtown Brevard
Saturday, Dec. 3
4pm Parade, 4-8pm Holiday Stroll 

Brevard’s much beloved annual Christmas Parade brings more holiday spirit than you can shake a peppermint stick at for their 51st year. And while this year’s theme of “Peace On Earth” is meant to promote peace and calm in the world, it’s no reflection on the excitement level of parade goers!  Come for the floats and the marching bands, and stick around 

for Santa.

After the parade, take a wander and wonder at the sparkling lights and twinkling storefronts during Brevard’s Holiday Stroll. Enjoy live music, Christmas tree lighting, delicious food, crafts, shopping, and cast your vote in the Holiday Windows Competition.
