Holiday Events at Reynolda House Museum of American Art and Reynolda Gardens

Reynolda House “A 1917 Christmas” Tours

These tours present a look back in time to the early 20th century holiday season at Reynolda. Stories of the Reynolds family are brought to life by museum staff and costumed actors. Tours are offered during the daytime and evening and last about an hour. Evening tours are especially fun because they are similar to candlelight tours and include light refreshments and carols performed by a children’s chorus. Tickets also include admission to the exhibition, the Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement, 1887-1920.

  • Tuesdays, December 1, 8, 15, 22; 2:00 – 3:30pm
  • Friday, December 4 and Saturday December 5; 5:00 – 8:00pm
  • Members/students $15, nonmembers $20

“Holiday Pops with Carolina Brass”

Carolina Bass is a band that plays everything from the elegance and grace of classical pieces to the sound of the Big Band era, and of course all the favorites of the season. This is one the most popular concerts Reynolda hosts and tickets usually sell out quickly!

  • Friday, December 11; 7:30pm
  • Members/students $10, nonmembers $20


“A Christmas Memory” by Truman Capote

This play has become a Christmas tradition in Winston-Salem! For two decades visitors have come to see this play at Reynolda, for some it is a family tradition and they come very year. Robin Voiers plays Truman Capote’s older cousin Sook in an original adaptation of A Christmas Memory, Capote’s take of his own humble childhood.

  • Sunday, December 20; 4:00pm
  • Members/students $10, nonmembers $15
