2015 Holiday Happenings and Events in Olympia, Tumwater and Lacey

VCB logoThe Thanksgiving leftovers are safely tucked in the fridge (my favorite part of the holiday) and our focus now shifts from pumpkins and turkey to mistletoe and snow. And while we all celebrate this season in different ways, we can also find ways to celebrate together.

Our community offers a host of opportunities to gather, rejoice, sing, and be merry. While some occasions are quiet and serious, others invite the laughter and joy of children (and adults). Whether you are looking to play inside or out, engage in activities quiet or loud, snap selfies or let the pros handle the photos, our list will supply just the right recipe for holiday fun.

1. Menorah and Tree Lightings

The Capitol Rotunda Christmas tree lighting is on December 4.

2. Holiday Theater Performances

The Stardust series is a local holiday favorite and the 2014 production saw record ticket sales and sell-out shows.

3. Music and Concerts

The Olympia Choral Society will perform a free holiday concert.

4. Santa Sightings and Photos

A visit to Santa is a highlight for any family.

5. Community and Family Fun
