Candlelight Nights at Atlanta History Center

Looking for something to do with the family on December 18th?  Head over to Atlanta History Center for Candlelight Nights.  It is a fun-filled evening for all ages.  You will step back in time and experience Christmas past with a candle-lit stroll through a crisp wooded trail that transports you to the warm glow of the holidays. Visit the Smith Family Farm, Swan House, and Wood Family Cabin to experience how Southerners celebrated Christmas during the pioneer days, the Civil War era, and the 1930s. Experience holiday traditions of years past with interpreters and special activities. Enjoy food for purchase and visit one of several cash bars for your favorite libation.

This special holiday program is sponsored by Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty; Fulton County Board of Commissioners under the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council. Additional support by Big John’s Christmas Trees; and Alliance Theater. 
Admission is $10 for members; $15 for nonmembers; $8 for all children.
