Santa at Sugar @ Sugar Mountain Resort

The Man in Red is making his rounds this time of year, and he’ll be making appearances at Sugar Mountain Resort throughout the holiday season. You might even catch Santa on the slopes! Be on your best behavior because he’s making his list and checking it twice. Good boys and girls can talk with him and tell him what they want to find on Christmas morning.

22nd Annual Blowing Rock Winterfest

WinterFest Lovers –

This year we will not be able to gather around one table for WinterFest or say “Cheers!” in a chilly Beer Garden like we’ve grown to enjoy.
However, you can still celebrate the fun side of Winter January 28-31, 2021. Feast all weekend long at your favorite Blowing Rock restaurants, shop winter Fashions on Main Street, enjoy an evening ice stroll and more!
Join the Village of Blowing Rock as we celebrate the fun side of Winter with the 23rd annual Blowing Rock WinterFest. More information on WinterFest activities and experiences coming soon.
The Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce would like to say Thank You! to our generous event sponsors: Hendrick Luxury Group, The Spice & Tea Exchange, The Speckled Trout Bottle Restaurant & Bottle Shop.
