Virtual Holiday Event Guide · 2020
Updated: Dec 9, 2020
While we may not be able to gather for traditional holiday performances and events this year, all is not lost! The benefit of everything going virtual is that we can experience programming from places we couldn't actually get to in real life. (Rockefeller Center anyone?!) And in most cases, they are free (or low cost)! Which means access to the arts is becoming more, well, accessible. And that's something to celebrate this season!
This is merely a sampling - there are SO MANY experiences out there online this year, waiting for you and your loved ones!
So make a plan to invite your friends + family to join you (in person/on the couch, or make a virtual date to attend together!), brew a cup of your fave hot beverage (boozy or not), grab a cozy blanket, and get ready to get into the holiday spirit!
December 11 / 5pm Pacific / *Requires $5 membership, good for a month of Fridays at Five programming

Bonus, go watch Disney’s ‘Puppy for Hanukkah,’ music by Daveed Diggs. You’re welcome.
Runs through December 31 / check the website for virtual programs + marketplace calendar
CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING
Runs through early January. In person tickets also seem to be available.
OK, not exactly the lighting celebration but... you can watch the live feed on their web page anytime between now and early January, and feel like you’re right there, practicing your triple axel!
