Hayesville, NC Winter Events

Winter Season is so quiet and peaceful in the Western North Carolina Mountains. It's the perfect opportunity to renew your spirit and truly get "one" with nature. Enjoy cozy fireplaces, roast a few marshmallows, and read a good book. Doesn't that sound perfect!

 Although the summer months are our busiest months here in the Hayesville, NC area, there are many other local events during the cool winter months.

The Licklog Players have wonderful plays throughout the year.  Check out their to schedule to see what they are performing.   

To celebrate the Christmas season, we have a number events to give your yultide cheer.  First Our annual Christmas Parade is on the first Saturday of December. Starting at 6:00pm the lighted floats pass by and the faces of all ages light up with joy for the holiday season. The prime location to watch the parade is in the town square, where you can enjoy the town Christmas Tree and all the festivities.  After the Parade drive through Jarrett Road to see the beautiful luminaries. For this one special evening, the homes along Jarrett Road light up their properties in celebration of the special season. Other holiday celebrations include the Fireside Sale at the JC Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC along with many Church Celebrations throughout the community.

While others lower the ball to ring in the new year, in Clay County we lower the "possum".  Everyone should experience "the Possom Drop" in Brasstown. This event is a favorite tradition for families in Clay County. Starting the evening off is the beauty pageant (at least one with a twist). Then everyone listens to some mountain music while enjoying funnel cakes, hot dogs, coffee or cocoa while waiting for New Years to arrive.  Don't worry no animals are harmed during this event.  It is only a stuffed possim that is dropped.
