Yes, this is another list of holiday things to do…like you don’t have enought to do already!

Still, I find that going to some holiday events gets me in the holiday mood, where I might not be otherwise. And many holiday events make great photo opportunities for us who like to take event photos.

What follows below is a combination of holiday events that we’ve added or have been added to our calendar by community event organizers, divided up by type of event. It’s by no means an exhaustive list, but does feature some of our annual favorites.

…and it (should) only feature upcoming events, which means it will grow more sparse as the holiday season goes on..but check back because may also add more events!

If you know of an event that should be here — for any December holiday — feel free to submit it to our events calendar.
