Free holiday movies, an award winning jazz band, holiday carols, the Nutcracker ballet, a Celtic Christmas celebration, a symphony, a choir and more. For the music-loving family of Nikki Glaros, an Edmonds mom, singer and employee at Hunni Co., the holidays are their favorite time of year in Edmonds.
“We feel so lucky to live in Edmonds,” said Nikki. “The holidays just come alive in this town. There are so many live performances that we’re in heaven!”
Live Holiday Performances
In early December, Christmas in Edmonds is the annual holiday performance of the North Sound Church, featuring the Mosaic Choir. The Sno-King Community Chorale is creating Holiday Memories with their performances. And Holiday Pops is the Cascade Symphony Orchestra’s annual festival Fanfare for Christmas.
There is room for a little romping fun this holiday, as well, with the ever-entertaining Gothard Sisters and Take 6. The sisters are Edmonds natives with an international reputation. They return annually to their hometown for a performance of holiday music, song, dance, and sibling shenanigans.
Also at Edmonds Center for the Arts, Take 6, a ten-time Grammy Award-winning vocal sextet, will bring a fusion of R&B, gospel, and pop to this program of Christmas favorites. Pre-Show Happy Hour has $5 drink specials and food plates from Shooby-Doo Catering.
Free movie to Nutcracker for family fun
There are plenty of options for the younger set. There is a free holiday-themed movie at the historic Edmonds Theater — Classic Holiday Cartoons, Polar Express and A Christmas Story will play two separate dates in December. Join in for the Edmonds Holiday Caroling Contest: “Jingle Those Bells!” And the Edmonds-Woodway High School Jazz Band performs annually. The jazz band is an award-winning band, designated among the Top 5 in the Seattle area.
Finally, the Olympic Ballet Theater performs the Nutcracker, Phoenix Theatre brings back Twist of the Magi by popular demand, and Driftwood Players delight with Peter and the Starcatcher.
