Tweetsie Railroad Christmas

Looking for more holiday fun in Ashe County? There is a whole lot of fun happening at Tweetsie’s Railroad in Blowing Rock. Here’s what you’ll experience:

Meet Santa in his own home -- made of gingerbread filled with candied furnishings.

Take a night-time train ride through the Blue Ridge Mountains on a crisp winter’s night, as you enjoy Christmas carols and the tracks dazzlingly lit for the holidays.

Christmas Lights. Lots of them -- thousands to be exact! Holiday lighting professionals have created a winter wonderland of lights not only along the three-mile track but also throughout the open areas of the park. Look for the tunnel of lights and the 40’ LED interactive Christmas tree.

Enjoy the sounds of Christmas during a 15-minute variety show in the Tweetsie Palace. You can enjoy the show and warm up with a bowl of chili or soup.

Step into a snow globe filled with swirling (synthetic) snow, peak through a Christmas present, feel dwarfed by nut crackers, toy soldiers, candy canes, toy drums, and more.

Roast s’mores over an outdoor fire pit and enjoy freshly baked cookies, warm funnel cakes, and other handmade items from Tweetsie Railroad’s famous Fudge Shop.
