Christmas On Temple Square

The Temple Square Christmas lights and concerts are an annual tradition and a top favorite for many Utah locals. The lights are turned on each year the day after the Thanksgiving holiday and remain on through New Year’s Day. During these evenings, Temple Square is usually aglow with over one million lights, musical performances, and holiday cheer.

Trees of Diversity

Utah Cultural Tree Exhibit

For nearly twenty years, the Utah Cultural Celebration Center has featured a holiday tree exhibit that overflows from the Celebration Gallery, and throughout the entire facility. Each year the number of groups involved, including arts, cultural, non-profit, and commercial, has grown and grown. The purpose of this exhibit is to bring the community together to celebrate various holiday traditions not only from different countries but from different religious backgrounds and various family or community traditions. The tree is used as a sign of friendship and is used to display the art and artifacts representing the richness of our community traditions.

This year the Trees of Diversity exhibition will have over 25 trees and holiday scenes created by various community and ethnic groups. Included are Amish, Honduran, American Indian, Chilean, Peruvian, and other South American countries, Mexico, Japan, Canada, Africa, Hawaii, Scotland, and others. The Cultural Center will also display artifacts and other historical items from around the world, along with art pieces, nativities, nutcrackers, gingerbread houses, special holiday “store window” scenes, sculptures, and wreaths. Two special displays will highlight holiday traditions in both the Jewish and Muslim communities, and the 100+ Dolls from Around the World collection will once again be on display.

A Christmas Carol by Hale Centre Theatre

Hale Center Theatre Presents A Christmas Carol, Utah, West Valley

A Utah Christmas Favorite

Deemed ‘Utah’s #1 Christmas Theatre Tradition’!

Parents, who once came as children – are now returning with their children to witness the miracle of Ebenezer Scrooge’s change of heart.  Charles Dickens’s important tale of redemption and forgiveness is splendidly retold through Richard G. Wilkins’ rich adaptation and Barlow Bradford’s stunning choral arrangements and orchestrations.  The costumes and sets are spectacular.

Riverboat Christmas Light Ride

Enjoy a lighted riverboat ride on the lower Provo River. There are thousands of lights reflecting off the water, holiday scenes along the shore, and Christmas music on the boat. Santa even comes to visit on his canoe. Last year close to 2,000 people enjoyed CLAS Christmas Cruise during the month of December.

Two professional excursion boats accommodate 40 people per ride. Since the boats are uncovered, blankets and warm clothes are strongly encouraged. The ride is a round-trip experience that takes 25 minutes, with departures every 30 minutes, on the hour and half-hour.
