2021 Guide to Holiday Concerts & Performances

This guide is brought to you by Pinecrest Gardens

A Resource of Miami Area Holiday Concerts & Performances

There’s something so lovely and festive about a holiday concert or performance. The traditional toy soldiers, nutcrackers, choirs, and carols have a way of lighting up the holiday season in a unique and special way. Especially when we are able to share those holiday activities with our kids.

Even though the Miami area is sprawled and densely populated, you can still find that smalltown feel at a local park or stage. And whether you see a professional ballet company or take in an in-person or virtual concert at a neighborhood event, you’ll likely leave with those warm fuzzies that make the season bright.

If you know of any holiday concerts or performances that you do not see listed in our guide, we’d love to know! Send an email to info{at}miamimomcollective.com. 

The entire team at Miami Mom Collective wishes you and your family a joyful and fun-filled holiday season!

Pinecrest Gardens transforms into a winter wonderland dotted by thousands of twinkling lights that go up, through, and around the whimsical botanical landscape. This year the botanical garden is adding more sections of sparkling holiday lights and a bigger than last year’s holiday-themed maze in the gardens.

Eat yummy treats, have a signature Pinecrest Gardens cocktail, and enjoy magical Story Time with Mrs. Claus. Stay tuned for special appearances from Santa Claus. On select evenings, admission includes a holiday concert performance in the historic Banyan Bowl.
