The Grove Arcade is officially ready for the 2020 holiday season!

In their annual Winter Wonderland holiday celebration, the Arcade has been transformed into a wreath-bedecked winter paradise showcasing Asheville’s local craftspeople, restaurants and retailers. The building is adorned with scents of pine and holly, holiday music, and beautiful festive décor warming the historic architecture of the Grove Arcade halls.

Visitors can tour this one-of-a-kind, stunning art deco gem and enjoy handcrafted local gifts, holiday-themed beverages and plenty of specials being offered by local businesses. Grove Arcade, and Winter Wonderland, is open and on display November 20th-January 4th, at 1 Page Avenue, Asheville, NC 28801, from Monday-Saturday, 8am-8pm, Sunday 10am-5pm.

“It’s especially pretty this year,” said Melinda Knies. “We have really large trees on either side of the north and sound end and we also have an additional wreath on the outside doors. We welcome everybody to come.”

This year also marks the debut of Live at Grove Arcade, a live-streamed webcast highlighting the creative artists, chefs, retailers, designers, collectors and service providers who make Grove Arcade Asheville’s most eclectic shopping and dining destination, and providing customers with top-notch gift ideas. The program will allow anyone at home to remotely bask in the holiday spirit while enjoying a behind-the-scenes look at the Arcade’s dreamers, and doers.

The first episode of Live at Grove Arcade airs on November 20th at 5pm on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, simply search @grovearcade.
