Fearrington Village doesn’t let a holiday go by unacknowledged. Each fall, the North Carolina country-chic community celebrates the season with its annual Pumpkinfest, which includes a spooky storytime for kids, live bluegrass music and pumpkin displays.
Come Thanksgiving, you’ll find a delectable luncheon at The Fearrington Granary and the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Fearrington House Restaurant. Let these farm-to-fork restaurants do the work for you, as you dine on seasonal fare like apricot and sage sausage stuffing, Brussels sprouts and bacon, and of course, turkey.
Christmas is another idyllic time to visit the village. That’s when its Holiday Market opens, offering a festive, European-style marketplace to buy gifts from local artists and vendors. It also marks the time of year that storyteller Donald Davis visits the Fearrington Barn (always to a packed house), and The Fearrington House Restaurant offers a scrumptious four-course Christmas lunch.
For a romantic New Year’s Eve for two, book a room at The Fearrington House Inn. There, you’ll be treated to afternoon tea, a tasting dinner for two, and champagne and truffles in your room, so you can celebrate the holiday on your own.
