Event Description

Designer Show House & Tour with Champagne and The Nutcracker

Special Event, starting at 6 PM (December 4 - 7 only!): 

After arriving at the Candler Mansion to a warm welcome and a cold glass of complementary champagne, you’ll be given a map and set free to tour the Tudor-Revival Mansion impeccably decorated by Atlanta’s top interior designers. Throughout the historic home, you will be treated to different selections of The Nutcracker performed by the Callanwolde School of Dance.


Finally, retire to the indoor Courtyard for delicious desserts provided by Murphy’s Restaurant. On the way out, don’t forget to stop by The Callanwolde Artist’s Market to peruse thoughtful gift ideas handcrafted by Callanwolde teachers and students.


Champagne begins flowing, and the dance experience begins at 6:00 PM, sharp. All desserts and drinks are included with admission. ID must be presented to be served alcoholic beverages.



The joy of the holiday season begins at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center with The Christmas at Callanwolde Designer Show House– an Atlanta holiday tradition for 40 years! Visitors of all ages will enjoy touring the 27,000 square-foot historic mansion elaborately decorated by Atlanta’s top interior and floral designers, as well as professional holiday displays, an expansive artists’ market, and themed events for all ages. Every room inspires and captures the spirit of the season. Callanwolde holds something for every member of the family.


By evening, see the 12 acre campus of Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in a new light- every building on the grounds will shine with professional light displays by Illuminating Design.
