The Nutcracker at the Fox Theatre
Once again, you can come watch the timeless classic, The Nutcracker, at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre! Enjoy the Atlanta Ballet dance out this wonderful Christmas play starting on December 7th and going until the 24th. Unfortunately, this will be the last holiday season you can enjoy this show at the Fox, so get your tickets here! We’re expecting tickets to go quickly, so don’t miss your chance to travel into the sugary winter wonderland that is E.T.A Hoffman’s classic novel, The Nutcracker.
Art Market at Monday Night Garage
Would you rather go to a Brewery instead of the ballet on December 7th? Consider heading the Monday Night Brewery’s Garage location! Not only do they have, in my opinion, some of Atlanta’s best beer, but they’re also hosting an art market! Drink some brews while shopping for Christmas presents, or head to their Das BBQ stand for some incredible lunch. It’s a great day activity as well, because the Garage is nestled right next to a great Distillery, another brewery, and some restaurants! You can read more details here.
DIY Holiday Wreaths at The Flower Bar
Hold off on buying that wreath! This year, you can head to the Flower Bar in East Atlanta to learn how to make your own. They’re holding fun classes on December 7th and 8th, where all supplies will be made available at the shop, and you can take home whatever you make. Located at the Irwin Street Market, it’s a great location to have a fun day out on the Beltline! The workshop ends at 1 PM, and they allow you to stay parked and leave your wreath in the shop so you can head to lunch or do some Christmas shopping in the area. Sign up here!
Atlanta Botanical Gardens Reindog Parade
Do you have a dog that you love to force into fun holiday costumes? If so, do you want to enter your dog into a contest to prove he’s the cutest one out there? Look no further! You can head to the Atlanta’s beautiful Botanical Gardens on (you guessed it) December 7th to do just that! You can sign your pooch up to be in the parade or sign up to just compete against the other dogs for the celebrity judges. And on the day of, get there early! The first 100 dogs to check-in get a special treat. If you want your pup in the parade, register now! Only 100 dogs can be in the parade.
Jingle Ball at State Farm Arena
Power 96.1 is doing it again, on December 20th you can rock out with a star-studded line up at State Farm Arena for the annual Jingle Ball. The show presented by Capitol One, is featuring artists such as The Jonas Brothers (squeal!), Khalid, Niall Horan, French Montana, Why Don’t We, Lewis Capaldi and Zara Larsson. These tickets are going to go quickly! Be one of the lucky and buy yours here.
A Christmas Carol at Alliance Theater
If you have a love for the theatre, and didn’t get your fill with the Nutcracker, fear not! Charles Dickens’s classic Christmas play will also be running in Atlanta throughout the season. It’s a wonderful Atlanta tradition, as this will be the 30th annual production of the play at the Alliance Theatre. Full of Atlanta’s best actors, the play is held in high regard by Atlanta’s locals and is worth going out for it. Showings are daily until Christmas eve, so you have plenty of dates to choose from! Get your tickets here.
