Caroling in the Caverns



Caroling in the Caverns is a unique and moving experience.  The combination of the beautiful natural architecture of the Cathedral Room of the Blanchard Springs Caverns paired with the voices and acoustic instruments of local folk musicians is a magical way to lull yourself into the holiday spirit.

Blanchard Springs is located just outside of Mountain View, Arkansas and is considered a “living cave”.  The cave is constantly changing and growing making each visit a new and interesting experience – and making it the perfect environment for a Christmas program.

Caroling in the Caverns is an event unique to Blanchard Springs Caverns. It began many years ago when a local musician wanted to pair the beauty of the caves together with the beautiful folk music that Mountain View is famous for. The constant temperature of 57 degrees in the cave combined with the unique acoustics makes for a concert that is beautiful both in sound and sense.

During the show the viewers are seated on stadium style benches. The artists and musicians move about the space to make use of the natural acoustics in effort to bring you a musical experience that will bring chills up your spine. Concert-goers will hear a unique combination of Celtic hymns, folk pieces and traditional Christmas songs. Viewers will also be invited to join in a few sing-alongs.  This is a Christmas experience that is perfect for the entire family.

Caroling in the Caverns begins Saturday November 29th and 30th at 4:30 pm.  Beginning Saturday, December 6 they will offer two shows every Saturday and Sunday leading up to Christmas.  For just $20 per person you will be treated to an awe inspiring Christmas experience.  Advanced tickets are required and you can reserve your seats by calling the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce at 888-679-2859.  Act quickly because seating is limited and tickets sell out fast.
