Main Street is decked in thousands of twinkling lights, and there are dozens of exciting, new festive events lining down the sidewalks. Since events change from year to year, it’s difficult to predict what surprises the Home for the Holidays team has in store! Our staff here at The Horse Shoe Farm made a list of our favorite Home for the Holidays past events to put you in the holiday spirit.

Home for the Holidays is also the perfect time to purchase a special gift for Christmas. During Olde Fashioned Hendersonville Christmas, merchants from the downtown area open their doors and welcome holiday shoppers into their shop. The stores have extravagant Christmas displays, caroling, music, and refreshments. Even if you’re not looking to purchase any gifts, window shopping is equally as fun!
Iceless Skating Rink
Have you ever been iceless skating? After experiencing Home for the Holidays, you can say you have! Enjoy ice-skating in Downtown Henderson on the new and improved iceless rink. The rink’s surface is made with special polymers, so the ice doesn’t require liquid. The arena also has a curling lane available. All Iceless Skating Rink proceeds will be donated to Henderson County America in Bloom Program.

Here in Hendersonville, Hayrides aren’t just for autumn. Home for the Holidays offers magical hayrides where you’ll journey through Downtown Hendersonville and see the Christmas lights and decorations. Plan to arrive at the Visitor Center early because Holiday Hayrides doesn’t accept reservations.
