Spend a Classic Christmas weekend in Historic Washington-Wilkes!

On Friday evening, eat, drink, and be merry at the Washington-Wilkes Historical Foundation's annual Holiday Gala held at Callaway Plantation. On Saturday, the Christmas Tour of Homes provides a rare glimpse inside five expertly preserved private homes showcasing some of the finest architecture and furnishings of the Old South. Newly added this year is a historian-led walking tour of the Historic Downtown Square. Be sure to stop by our three house museums, including the Robert Toombs House where Dickens' classic Christmas tale comes to life. Stay for dinner Saturday as local hosts serve an impressive, multi-course meal prepared by a local chef in one of the many homes in Washington's Historic District.

Tickets may be purchased separately or as a package. Reservations for the Candlelight Dinner must be made by December 1. Discounted rates available at the Fitzpatrick Hotel (1898) for Premier Package ticket holders.
