Miami Mom Collective Guide to Holiday Concerts & Performances

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 small-town feel at a local park or stage. And whether you see a professional ballet company or take in a 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} 

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

The Nutcracker presented by Miami City Ballet

The sweetest of all holiday traditions is back. Little Marie’s dream comes alive in George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® and you are invited on her enchanted journey! With her gallant Nutcracker Prince, she bravely fights off an army of mice and their ferocious king, and travels through a wintry wonderland of darting, swirling snowflakes to the Land of Sweets where waltzing flowers and curious confections from around the world dance for her.

Marvel at MCB’s spectacular production with magic at every turn, a cast of over 100 dancers and children in lavish costumes, and Tchaikovsky’s beloved, instantly recognizable music played by a brilliant live orchestra.

Delight your family and friends with a holiday experience like no other–a chance to gather and get into the spirit while creating lasting memories.
