Christmas in Atlanta is our family’s favorite time of year. We love the lights, the chilly temps in front of a fire with the Christmas tree glowing, photos with Santa and working a few dozen holiday shows into our schedule. Below you will find dozens upon dozens of Christmas events around Atlanta.
Christmas at The Rock Ranch.
How would you like to take a train ride through more than one mile of Christmas lights? Head to Country Christmas Nights at The Rock Ranch, centrally located near Atlanta, Macon, Columbus, and LaGrange, Ga. Families can hop onboard The Rock Ranch Christmas Express Train ride featuring a snowflake tunnel and enjoy a dancing Christmas light show. Then step inside Truett’s Barn to explore Santa’s workshop, and catch story time with an elf. Make a magical, new Christmas tradition at Breakfast with Santa where Ol’ Saint Nick visits each table and family for special chats and photos. Don’t miss the most wonderful time of the year, at The Rock Ranch. Visit therockranch.com for details and tickets.
Stone Mountain Christmas.
Millions of lights, Christmas shows, and Rudolph create a night to remember at Stone Mountain Christmas. Don’t miss a five-mile excursion on the Singalong Christmas Train, featuring a track-side show about the first Christmas. Watch the nightly Christmas Parade featuring Santa and Mrs. Claus, and end your night with the magic of the Snow Angel flying high to create snow and fireworks. Six ways to save on tickets!
Children’s Christmas Parade.
Watch as Midtown Atlanta transforms into Santa Claus Lane with the sights and sounds of the season at the largest holiday parade in the southeast. Children’s holds a special place in our heart, and this parade is one of our favorite. It recently moved to Midtown, but the quality is still superior. Bring blankets, a cooler of water or hot cocoa, chairs…whatever you need to enjoy the show! We splurged on bleacher seats one year…that was special. Great memories are made here, and all for a great cause.
Macy’s Pink Pig.
Hop aboard this 60-year Atlanta tradition and ride Priscilla the Pink Pig on train tracks through a life-sized storybook.
Rudolph at Center for Puppetry Arts.
Adapted and directed by Jon Ludwig; Based on the classic television special. Rudolph soars back into town for this faithful adaptation of the wonderful holiday tradition that speaks to the misfit in all of us. Based on the beloved 1964 stop-motion animated special, Rudolph and his friends (including Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and the Abominable Snow Monster) take the stage in what the AJC describes as a “holly-jolly holiday adventure for theater-goers of all ages.” You won’t want to miss it!
