Some of the events that take place each year include wine tasting, ice carving demonstrations, live music and the always-popular WinterPaws Dog Show.

This year, the non-profit groups that received donations from the chamber of commerce included Hospitality House, Western Youth Network, Blue Ridge Conservancy, Blood, Sweat & Gears, Mountain Alliance, Boy Scout Troop 100, the Rotary Club of Blowing Rock and Blowing Rock Parks & Recreation.
