Date & Times

Friday, December 2, 2022

4 to 10 PM Craft Fair

6 to 10 PM House Tours

Plan a visit to historic Woodstown, NJ for the 44th Woodstown Candlelight Tour. Located in rural Salem County, Woodstown predates the Revolutionary War. This charming village is home to a large number of Victorian residences as well as other structures dating from before the Revolutionary War to the present day.


Get in the holiday spirit by spending the evening touring seasonally decorated homes, businesses and churches in a town that dates back to Colonial times. Enjoy shopping at local merchants or at the annual craft fair located in the Baptist Church on S Main St. There will be caroling, homemade cookies, wassail and a variety of other musical entertainments. Parking is free. Yellow mini-buses, courtesy of B.R Williams, will provide free transportation throughout the town on the night of the tour.

Many of our local businesses will be open this evening. They hope you will stop by. We encourage you to enjoy a light supper or snack this evening at one of our local eateries.

There are (tbd) historic homes open to tour goers this year.


Proceeds benefit the Pilesgrove-Woodstown Historical Society.
