A Merry Little Christmas Festival Poplar Grove

  • Poplar Grove Plantation 10200 U.S. 17 Wilmington, NC, 28411 United States (map)

The grounds, outbuildings and Manor House of Poplar Grove will be specially lit up and twinkling, including a Winter Bazaar of 60 juried arts and crafts vendors and interactive experiences over the course of two weekends, so bring family and friends, and spend a small part of your holiday with us! Admission is $5.00 and includes a blazing bonfire for roasted marshmallows, activities for the family including a letter writing station to post those little wishes to the North Pole, visits with Santa, lawn games, a USO vignette to write letters to our US soldiers serving abroad, concurrent outdoors screenings of classic movie favorites, such as “The Polar Express,” “A Christmas Story,” and “Elf.”  If you dare, peek inside the Grinch’s Junk Shop in the Blacksmith Studio.

This is an opportunity to spend time with your family without waiting in long lines, but rather strolling our lighted grounds and playing midway games of the past. Remember ring toss? Come try your aim at our Shoot ‘Em Up booth, or see how well you can pitch a penny – watch out! Bring blankets and chairs, and plan to stay a while!
