Exciting Atlanta Events Happening In December For Everyone

December has no shortage of Christmas events and programming (check out our other holiday listing here too), but there is also plenty to be enjoyed that has nothing to do with the Big Man in the red suit. Explore an exhibit, take a yoga class, and cozy up around the campfire. We have those listed for you, too.

Holiday Lights at Atlantic Station

Event Start: 11/17/2018
Event End: 01/01/2019

View 250,000 lights within an 8-block radius. This is a wonderful FREE light display, and I love that you can walk around, vs. having to drive through. While here, gather around the grand 50-foot tall Christmas Tree, and experience the magic of a realistic snowfall Sunday-Thursday at 6:00pm and Friday and Saturday 6:00-9:00 pm at the top of each hour. (Snow is weather permitting).

A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol

Event Start: 11/30/2018
Event End: 12/16/2018

It’s Christmas Eve, 1943, the Feddington Players are broadcasting their interpretation of Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” from a hole-in-the-wall studio in Newark. As mayhem ensues, the company is forced to improvise the ending as a film noir mystery, featuring a hardboiled detective, a femme fatale, and an absurd rescue of Tiny Tim (and the Lindbergh baby) from the clutches of a Hitler-esque villain named Rudolf. Tickets: www.act3productions.org 6285-R Roswell Rd., Sandy Springs. 770.241.1905
