The Epiphany of Our Lord

Saturday, January 6

Feast & Celebrate at Kanuga


471 Kanuga Chapel Drive, Hendersonville, NC 28739

All are invited to Kanuga for the Feast of the Epiphany! We have invited all parishes of the Hendersonville Deanery and look forward to joining our fellow Episcopalians for this amazing event. We will begin with a Eucharist in the beautiful chapel at Kanuga. From there we will feast together with Kanuga providing pork tenderloin, baked chicken, and hot dogs. Participants are invited to bring a side dish, salad/bread, or dessert, which will be assigned alphabetically. 


The evening will be filled with fun activities such as a mobile planetarium which will allow folks to see the night sky as the Wise Men did as they sought the Christ child. There will be crafts for making crowns and star lanterns. There will also be star gazing available as well as a candlelight labyrinth walk.


The cost is $12 per adults, $8 per youth, and children up to 12 years old are free.


Kanuga is thrilled to share its nature and hospitality with our local Episcopal family! Tickets may be purchased using the button below. If you have any questions, please contact Aimee Bostwick at Kanuga.
