Only once a year can Atlanta residents experience a mansion exemplifying the holiday spirit. The Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, in collaboration with the South’s premier interior and floral designers, have transformed 27,000 square-foot home into the ultimate Christmas house.

From now until Dec. 18, all day into early evening, guests can take in the beautiful furniture, designer treasures, fine art and breathtaking evergreen trees reflect the glorious era when the Candler family lived in the magnificent 1920s Gothic-Tudor mansion. Celebrate the season at our house this year with festive family activities, entertaining cabaret nights, holiday shopping and majestic music played on the Aeolian pipe organ. Special events include Battle of the Ice, cabaret nights, holiday shopping, an artists’ studio, even Breakfast with Santa and a Teddy Bear Tea for the kids.
