This Year’s Lineup Includes Revelry from the Grinch, Visits with Santa, a Menorah Lighting Celebration & King of Pops’ Tree Elves Lot

Festivities Kick Off on Friday, Nov. 23rd with Mayhem at the Market, the Ultimate Showdown between Santa & the Grinch


This November and December, Ponce City Market’s holiday spectacular will return to the historic community destination for merry celebrations throughout the season. Free and open to the public, The Yard will transform into a winter wonderland complete with King of Pops’ Tree Elves Lot, visits with Santa, revelry from the Grinch, a menorah lighting celebration and more.


Featuring a lush, winding forest of trees for purchase beginning late November, The Yard’s winter wonderland welcomes guests to either choose a tree to take home or place an order for the King of Pops Tree Elves to deliver the green prize right to their doorstep. The Tree Elves will also pick up trees for easy recycling after the holidays!


Holiday cheer will be spread all around Ponce City Market, and festivities kick off on Friday, November 23, when The Yard becomes ground-zero for one of the biggest holiday brouhahas Atlanta has ever seen. It’s the Ultimate Showdown of Naughty vs. Nice, with the green, mean, anything but clean Grinch and his Punishing Posse in one corner and the man in the famous red suit with a sack of menace slung over his shoulder in the other! Come one, come all, and claim a ringside seat to witness up close a wrestling match for the ages. Mayhem at the Market is free to all and begins at 11am, but come early for face-painting, poster-making, temporary tattoos and more starting at 10:30am.
