It’s Christmastime in New Smyrna Beach, so let the fun begin! You can get the festive ball rolling by joining Santa and Mrs. Claus December 3rd at The Merry & Bright Christmas Festival at The Grand Ol’ Barn, which promises plenty of your favorite Christmas tunes, a marketplace for holiday shopping and fun for the kids including ornament making, a bouncy house, snow cones and hot chocolate. There will also be adult beverages to toast the season! Then top off the merriment with a stop at the Homemade Christmas Cookie Challenge on Flagler Avenue December 4th.
If you’d like to take in an entertaining Nutcracker performance during the holidays, there is one with a twist December 11th at The Atlantic Center for the Arts. It’s a rock opera fantasy and modern dance show that is sure to brighten your holidays.
There are also live Christmas concerts at The Hub on Canal to get you in the spirit and New Smyrna Beach’s dazzling Christmas tree lighting ceremony, which is always a sight to behold. New Smyrna Beach has lively Christmas parades by both land and sea. Or you can kick in that New Smyrna Beach laid-back vibe with beach yoga on Christmas Eve.
New Smyrna Beach is charming all year long, but with visits from Santa, shops along its quaint, historic streets festively decorated to welcome the season and an unparalleled Christmas spirit, New Smyrna Beach is particularly magical during the holiday season.
