Christmas In Charleston Event

Grand Illumination at Middleton Place

Step back to Christmas, 1782, when Arthur Middleton finally was able to come back home after years of incarceration as a prisoner-of-war during the American Revolution.

Stroll through gardens illuminated by torchlight, candlelight and starlight and hear costumed interpreters along the way tell stories of the joyous holiday season when the British evacuated Charleston at the end of the Revolutionary War.

See the House seasonally decorated and glowing in candlelight, and on the Greensward, enjoy a warm fire, live music and refreshments. The event concludes with a Southern Buffet dinner.

6:00 – 8:00 p.m., $55/person
