Advance Ticket Sales for both evenings are now closed. This event does not “sell out” — Tickets are still available and can be purchased at Aunt Dealy’s Cottage Gift Shop upon arrival, starting at 5pm on Friday, December 14 and Saturday, December 15. The last tickets will be sold at 8:30pm both nights. There are no timed entry slots or reservations; tickets can be purchased anytime between 5-8:30pm. You will get in line to enter the house once tickets have been purchased. In past years, the wait time has varied, but is usually around 5 – 15 minutes, though it could be longer. Waiting to enter the house occurs outside on the North Porch, so bundle up! We are typically busiest from 5 – 6:30pm, we highly recommend arriving after 7pm if you are concerned about a wait to enter the house.
*On Candlelight days, the last tickets for regular, daytime tours are sold at 4pm. Candlelight Tours & Ticket Sales begin at 5pm.
Tickets are nonrefundable and the ticket dates are nontransferable.
- While you’re near downtown Kernersville, visit a local restaurant for dinner or a glass of wine, such as Giada’s Trattoria or J. Pepper’s Southern Grille, before your candlelight tour. Check out our complete listing of local restaurants here.
- The tour is self-guided, so you can take as much time or as little time as you like in each room. On average, people spend 45 minutes – 1 hour during the Candlelight Tours. Costumed guides will be stationed throughout the house, feel free to ask them questions.
- Before you arrive, watch our 9 minute Tour Introduction Video on YouTube. This will help to reduce wait times to enter the house.
- Bring a camera! Pictures are allowed inside the house; this will be a perfect opportunity for Christmas photos.
- The house is dimly lit during Candlelight Tours, so please use caution as you follow the tour route.
