Just outside the doors of Onyx, you’ll find all kinds of ways to celebrate the holiday season – both traditional and more out-of-the-box. Check out our list of must-see holiday events for 2021.
Is There a Holiday Light Display in Tallahassee?
Head to Dorothy B. Oven Park in Tallahassee’s Woodland neighborhood to see one of the city’s most treasured holiday traditions. Drive through more than 250,000 twinkling lights, illuminated displays, and holiday music that make up the dazzling 6-acre spectacle. You’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to a joyful winter wonderland. The park will stay aglow until Jan. 1, 2022.
Where Can I Enjoy a Classic Holiday Performance in T-Town?
If you’re looking for a classic holiday experience, there’s none better than The Nutcracker. The Tallahassee Ballet’s rendition of this holiday favorite will leave you with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart. You can catch an evening or matinee performance on the weekend of Dec. 18 and 19.
What’s the Best Holiday Concert Coming to Tallahassee?
Head over to All Nations Church on Sharer Road for a Dec. 17 performance by Steven Curtis Chapman. With 49 number one hits and a background in folk and bluegrass music, you can bet that Acoustic Christmas will feature classic holiday tunes with a warm, unpretentious vibe.
How About a Sporting Event With a Holiday Twist?
For anyone who loves running or walking, and supporting a great cause, why not try a virtual race with a twist? Celebrate National Ugly Sweater Day on Dec. 19 with the seventh annual Ugly Sweater 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and Marathon – preferably while wearing your own favorite holiday sweater. You pick the distance you want to run and 20% of each race registration fee is donated to the Feed My Starving Children organization. Because this event is virtual, you can complete your run any time in December.
