Virtual Holiday Festival
Holiday festivals are a cornerstone of community engagement during the Christmas season. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, holiday festival-goers will not be able to come together like they usually do this year. In order to revive the spirit of the holidays in Colorado, one decades-old Boulder tradition will be bringing it's activities to an online stage. Keep reading for what you can expect from this virtual event and how you can attend.
Colorado University Festival
This continuing Christmas tradition is brought to you by CU Presents. CU Presents is the home of performing arts on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. Every year, they offer hundreds of concerts, plays, and recitals for students and other local community members. Their Holiday Festival has been a place where faculty and students can come together from across the College of Music to perform seasonal favorites. With the series moving online, now more and more people can experience the festivities for themselves because tickets will no longer be limited to the number of theatre seats.
CU Presents suggests that viewers stream the festival with their families and engage in their own Christmas traditions at the same time. Now you can watch the festival from your home while decorating gingerbread houses, making extra decorations for the tree, wrapping presents, or simply enjoying a cup of hot cocoa. Scheduled for December 4th, you can enjoy the performances for $20 a person, $40 for the whole family, or $80 for a large group.
