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!
