Carr Mill By Candlelight and Tree Ceremony

This year, our Carr Mill by Candlelight event will include a candle lighting ceremony where we gather together to strengthen the roots of our community and send love and light to our beloved grandfather Oak. The evening will begin at 6:00pm with a performances by Second Shift A Cappella followed by Katharine Whalen Jazz Squad. Stroll Carr Mill By Candlelight, enjoy free hot chocolate and cider, TB&C’s custom Post Oak IPA from Vecino Brewing Co., our custom coffee from Carrboro Coffee Roasters, and snacks. There will be amazing raffle prizes from all the stores you love in Carr Mill. At TB&C we will have a Fjällräven Trunk show and free waxing clinic to waterproof your gear. We will have special gifts from our sponsor Oboz Footwear and Fjällräven. We will also be launching our Kombucha Bar brought to the store thanks to KEEN! Thanks to Keen we will now have Boro Beverage on tap at the shop for you to enjoy while you shop! Come early to get a super cool Keen pint cup!


As many of you know, the Post Oak out front of TB&C is under duress. Our lovely Post Oak cannot handle having its trunk tangled in lights so this year we are doing a special candle lighting ceremony. We will have hundreds of candles and will join together as a community to bring light and love to the tree.

Thanks to our sponsors Carr Mill Mall, the Carrboro Business Alliance, Town of Carrboro, NC, Oboz Footwear and Fjällräven for helping make this event possible.
