Our Favorite Holiday Events in Atlanta

Remember, remember, the joy of December… that’s how that poem goes, right? Well, something like that. Either way, we’re glad this month is here. It means the holiday season is upon us, and we all get to come together in our community to celebrate the festive good cheer that makes this month so special.

Whether your holiday is Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or you just like all of them, then we’ve got an event for you. There are many holiday events in Atlanta, and in this week’s blog, we at Alta at Jonquil are spotlighting just a few that you won’t want to miss!

  • Celebrate a very Stone Mountain Christmas! Train rides, photos with Santa, festive food and drinks, and millions of lights - what’s not to like?! Families and friends of all ages will want to join, and we don’t blame them. The decor is up for weeks, and the tubing and snow festivities are happening through March 4th, 2018 - you’ve got plenty of time to go!

  • Macy’s Annual Great Tree Lighting is happening at Lenox Square, and CeeLo Green is the special guest this year. What better way to ring in the holiday season than with festive music and lots and lots of lights? We can’t think of any!

  • Festival of the SEAson is happening at Georgia Aquarium through December 31st, and you won’t want to miss out on this. With a lights and music show, a winter wonderland all around, not to mention your favorite sea creatures, we never knew mixing the holiday season with oceanography could be this much fun!

  • The Lighting of Atlantic Station is an Atlanta tradition. Santa will be there, a lights and music show will take your breath away, and the displays will have you rocking around the tree with festive holiday cheer for the rest of the season.

  • Last, but certainly not least, Garden Lights Holiday Nights are happening at the Atlanta Botanical Garden all month and into the New Year. Be sure to take a camera for some prime photo ops!

Of course, this list isn’t fully comprehensive of everything happening in Atlanta throughout the whole month of December… so you’ll just have to tell us what we missed. Go ahead. We’ll give it a shoutout on social if it’s an event that seems like a can’t-miss party. Cheers, and happy holidays!
