Holiday Events

“When you have more than you need, build a longer table, not a higher fence.”

Historic Rock Castle believes in continuing to build a longer table as our amazing community expands! One way we are doing this is by creating Holiday events that the whole family will enjoy. With the help of our generous sponsors, we are able to provide magical holiday gatherings that will provide your family and friends with cherished traditions and memories that will last a lifetime!
