FREE* Community Holiday Festival

You better not pout, you better not cry because Schellville is coming back to town.

In 2021, Schell Brothers brought their magical Christmas village dreams to life. Welcoming more than 104,000 guests, serving more than 12,000 cups of hot cocoa, and raising more than $84,000 to help end childhood hunger, Schellville was much more than a village behind Tanger Outlets it was a Christmas miracle for many.

With its great success in 2021, Schell Brothers in partnership with Tanger Outlets is excited to announce the expansion of Schellville for the 2022 season. The expansion will include tree houses, an expanded snow zone, an amazing band line-up every night, a sledding hill, game room, a new train, and much more!

Schellville is guaranteed to be filled with holiday magic, goodwill, and fun for the entire family. And the best part, most of the activities are completely FREE*!

*Admission and most activities are free. Fees for skate rental ($5.00 – unless you bring your own). Third party vendors, food concessions and shopping charge independently. Cash, credit cards and contactless payment onsite at booths.

*No pets allowed in the event.
