A six hour LIVE holiday extravaganza!

Since 1964 the Commission has produced a Holiday Celebration in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Music Center on December 24th from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The program honors the spirit of many cultures and holiday traditions through music, song and dance.

Community and professional choirs, music ensembles, folk and traditional artists, and dance companies perform for an audience in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion while the program is broadcast live throughout Southern and Central California on KCET.

Attendance and parking are free. No reservations or tickets are necessary. Doors open at 2:30pm. Seating is first come, first served. Attendees can arrive at any time and stay as long as they wish.

Holiday Celebration attendees are invited to bring canned and packaged goods to the Music Center the day of the show to support the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. Bring non-perishable food items and deposit in bins at the Music Center Plaza.

Since 2002 the Commission has produced a one-hour television special of selected Holiday Celebration performances for national broadcast by PBS.  Over 10,000 people attended last year.
