J. E. Broyhill Center Holiday Events

things to do in Lenoir NC

Lenoir is unlike many mountain towns in North Carolina. Here you’ll find a nostalgic small mountain town with big city culture. For example, there’s a variety of things to do in Lenoir NC this holiday season. Starting in November, the J.E. Broyhill Civic Center is hosting a number of family-friendly events that are sure to get you in the holiday spirit.

On November 19th, the Western Piedmont Symphony will hold its annual Holiday Pops! fundraiser. This Holiday Pops! Nutcracker Ball will showcase the Hickory Jazz Orchestra performing Duke Ellington’s famous “Nutcracker Suite.” Additionally, the Caldwell Men’s Chorus will open the show with a number of holiday favorites and Just Jazz Friends will provide dinner music.

From December 1-4th, Foothills Performing Arts will present their unique interpretation of the beloved holiday classic, “A Christmas Carol.” Stop by the Civic Center on December 17th for “A Celtic Christmas,” a special performance featuring the Silvio Martinat Swing Band and Puddingstone, a 7-member band with vocals, guitar, synthesizer, and fiddle.

If you’re looking for things to do in Lenoir NC, look no further than the J.E. Broyhill Civic Center. The Center boasts a 1,000-seat theater/auditorium with fabulous acoustics, where they host an annual Showcase of Stars season, featuring a variety of family-friendly events including comedy, music, theatre, and more. The Center also has a 7,660-square foot conference facility  – with full-service catering on-site – that can be rented for everything from receptions to family reunions.

Tucked into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we feel Lenoir is by far the most charming when it comes to mountain towns in North Carolina. Lenoir is a vibrant community full of artists and nature lovers, and is perhaps best known as the birthplace of some of the most skilled and gifted craftsmen in the industry.

Lenoir is also home to The Coves Mountain River Club, a unique Lenoir NC real estate development where residents at retirement can enjoy a night out New York City-style in their own hometown. Within our gates, you find a plethora of lifestyle amenities.
