Christmas Magic:

A cozy holiday village of its own, Silk Hope Farm Heritage Park will be celebrating area vendors on Saturday, November 2 in their Christmas Magic event. The community of Silk Hope first made an appearance on a county map in 1870. Silk Hope Farm will take you back in time, to a place of Christmas magic and holiday spirit. 

Back in its heyday, Silk Hope was home to many farmers who worked hard to produce cotton, tobacco and grains. The cotton gin and the gristmill down the road allowed many of those same farmers to sell their products. Years later, those products would extend to dairy, poultry and pecans. On November 2, experience the community of vendors that still celebrate the essence of shopping local. 

This free holiday shopping event will be hosted from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Silk Hope Farm Heritage Park located in Siler City. Shop for jewelry and gifts and enter for your chance to win one of the many door prizes!
