Christmas Eve Services | Dec. 23 and 24 at 4 & 6 p.m. |

What's your story?

The streets are lined with twinkling lights and the windows are dusted with snow. Friends, both old and new, shout season's greetings that carry joy like a melody in the wind. This, you say to yourself, is Christmas in the City.

So what's your story? Everyone has one; and at Christmastime, all those stories and memories come together. This year, we're bringing that same sense of community to College Park for Christmas in the City. Come celebrate with an evening of music, dancing, and special guests, as we share the joy of the greatest story of all. Be sure to stick around for the After Party, featuring a Gingerbread Village, a balloon artist, and a photo booth! 

Child care registration is now closed. However, we are providing limited walk-in child care for our guests.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. When should I arrive?

We encourage our guests to arrive well before the event so you have plenty of time to park, enjoy the atmosphere, and check-in for child care if necessary. If you need child care, please arrive 30-45 minutes before the concert. While child care registration is closed, we are providing walk-ins as our resources and space allow.

Please note: There is no child care for the Saturday evening performance of Christmas in the City.

2. Do I need tickets?

Christmas in the City is free and no tickets are required. However, due to the popularity of this event, we recommend you arrive 20-30 minutes early (see question #1).

3. I have kids. Can I bring them to the concert?

Christmas in the City is a family-friendly event. At the same time, we recognize that attending a Christmas concert can be difficult with young children. We provide free child care for our guests so parents can enjoy a relaxed evening. Child care registration is now closed but we will accept walk-ins will be accepted as resources and space allow.*

*The Saturday evening performance of Christmas in the City does not have child care.

4. What is the After Party?

What's a Christmas concert without holiday festivities? Following each event, you and your family are invited to enjoy our life-sized Gingerbread Village, a balloon artist, a kid-friendly snowball "scuffle," and photo booth. There will also be plenty of delicious holiday treats to enjoy!

5. Can I attend more than once?

We are so glad you are interested in experiencing Christmas in the City multiple times! Our guests are welcome to return to the concert—and bring friends!

To help make room for guests, we ask that College Park families please attend only one concert. If you want to attend the concert a second time, please sit in Overflow.
