Candlelight Tour of Historic Houses of Worship

The beloved Candlelight Tour of Historic Houses of Worship returns this holiday season in Downtown Frederick. This special open house celebrates Frederick’s stunning architecture, local history, and the holiday season on Thursday, December 26, 2024 from 4PM-9PM. This is Frederick's most popular church tour and is a great opportunity to step inside some of its most beautiful buildings.

As the sun begins to set, visitors can tour many of Frederick’s famous clustered spires and other historic houses of worship by candlelight.  Guests will be welcomed with special programs, angelic choirs, and nativity scenes. 

Stop by the Information Center at 19 E Church Street to pick up a printed map of participating sites and other information about Frederick including dining, shopping, and lodging guides.


The Candlelight Tour of Historic Houses of Worship is made possible through the generous support of:
