Candlelight Weekends 2021

The highlight of our year is almost upon us, and soon we will be decorating the town with thousands of lights in preparation for Candlelight Weekends, now in its 38th year. The firefighters will pull the Christmas tree out of storage and patiently help us string new lights and new ornaments. We’re glad they have their tall ladder and strong arms to accomplish the task. Sure, it’s a lot of hard work, but it’s also something we enjoy.

One of the most special things about Warm Springs is that we have a great community of merchants who look out for each other and work well together. We’re committed to making your 2021 Candlelight experience the best yet. Our shops are well-stocked and prepared for holiday shopping. Many will have samples of jellies, dressings, cheese straws, hot cider, and other delicious treats. Santa will be at the Visitors Center on Fridays and Saturdays from 4:30-6:30 PM through December 18. Warm Springs is often described as “the perfect movie town” since it resembles the small towns in the holiday television movies.

We’re thrilled that the Friends of the Little White House and the staff of the Little White House are bringing the Candlelight Run back to Warm Springs. This has been an annual tradition for many years, and it’s exciting to see the Friends and the LWH step up to sponsor this year’s event. Registration forms are on the website at
