Best Holiday Events in Dallas-Fort Worth Area
Somehow it’s already the 2018 holiday season, but we’re all set here at Hotel Crescent Court to welcome you for plenty of festivities and good cheer! The Dallas-Fort Worth area comes chockablock with holiday happenings this jampacked stretch of the calendar—here are just a few of the goings-on to get you excited for a Hotel Crescent Court getaway!
Dallas-Fort Worth knows how to mark the holiday season theatrically speaking. You’ve got no shortage of options, including some stone-cold family classics. (Dallas Theater provides a good roundup of holiday shows.)
Fans of The Nutcracker, for example, have Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker at McFarlin Auditorium Nov. 17th and 18th, the Texas Ballet Theatre’s production at the Winspear Opera House from Nov. 23rd through Dec. 2nd, and a show at the Bruton Theater on Dec. 1st to choose from. And then there’s the immortal saga of Ebenezer Scrooge, A Christmas Carol, presented by the Dallas Theater Center at the Wyly Theatre Nov. 21st through Dec. 30th.
Slightly more modern classics await your theater-going pleasure, too: for example, Disney on Ice: Frozen at the Allen Event Center Nov. 21st through the 25th and A Christmas Story at the Winspear Opera House Dec. 12th through the 16th.
As usual, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra is putting on a whole “suite” (if you will) of holiday concerts, including selections from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty (Nov. 23rd through the 25th), A John Williams Christmas (Nov. 20th through Dec. 2nd) featuring some of the legendary film composer’s most iconic scores, the annual Dallas Symphony Christmas Pops (Dec. 7th through the 16th), and the Big Brassy Christmas & Organ Extravaganzå (Dec. 10th). Meanwhile, there won’t be many classier ways to ring in 2019 than at the orchestra’s New Year’s Eve concert, featuring a slew of Strauss waltzes and an intermission champagne toast.
There are, of course, plenty of other holiday concerts spicing up the metro area’s calendar, not least saxophonist Chris Mitchell’s White Christmas concert at the Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth on Dec. 1st and a Christmas concert by Clint Black at the Winspear Opera House on December 3rd.
Holiday Parades & Displays
The GM Financial Parade of Lights sees some fabulous holiday floats track a roughly 1.5-mile parade route in downtown Fort Worth on Nov. 18th, a day after the annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Sundance Square Plaza. On Saturday, Dec. 1st, meanwhile, the Dallas Holiday Parade bring yuletide cheer to Downtown Dallas via Commerce, Harwood, and Young streets.
