The most wonderful time of year has returned, and the magic of Christmas is in the air! In celebration of the holiday, Vinings Jubilee is hosting its 38th annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Thursday, Dec. 7. With holiday activities, live performances, and an appearance from Santa Claus himself, the event is the perfect occasion to kick off the season and bask in Christmas cheer with friends, family, and everyone dear.

The Vinings Jubilee Christmas Tree Lighting is an event that we are both proud and excited to host each year,” said Paces Properties CEO David Cochran. “It’s an occasion that brings friends and families in the Vinings community and from across Atlanta together as they celebrate a time for joy, fellowship, and the holiday season.”

This year, the event is offering several family-friendly activities, including a holiday puppet show, train rides, face painting, balloon art, crafts such as ornament-making, and so much more. Holiday songstress Lady V and The Candy Canes and the Whitefield Jazz Academy will also be taking the stage for performances of holiday song favorites. Attendees can also expect a Holiday Sing-Along experience where all, young and old, are invited to join in for karaoke and Christmas carols.

In addition, those who have been nice more than naughty can look forward to Santa’s annual appearance at the event! He’ll have his list (and will be checking it twice) while he takes holiday photos with boys and girls who’ve been on their best behavior this year.

This free holiday celebration will take place at the Vinings Jubilee Tower Stage. Plan to arrive early, as parking is complimentary but limited. Before the celebrations begin, feel free to do some early Christmas shopping. Before, during, or after, enjoy a bite to eat at any of Vinings’ delicious eateries, including Bartaco, HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern, Mellow Mushroom, SOHO, Stockyard Burgers, and Southern Baked Pie Company.
