Bunches and bunches of Christmas things to do in Williamsburg this week, and more in the calendar–
Tuesday and Wednesday
“A Christmas Story” at the Movie Tavern– 7:30pm
Put on by Young Emerging Professionals of Williamsburg (YEP). I went to one once, it was really nice. At least when I went, there were only three of us, so it was easy to get to know one another. It’s a great way to meet new people. And plus- it’s Plaza Azteca! I have made meals of their guacamole alone. . .
Lessons and Carols at Williamsburg Presbyterian- 7:30 pm
The event is free, and everyone is invited. Special performances will be provided by William and Mary’s Women’s Chorus and the Westminster Ringers of Williamsburg Presbyterian Church. Students, faculty, and staff will join campus ministers in reading biblical passages appropriate to the season with carols and hymns sung by the congregation, as well as special music. The service will conclude with the singing of “Silent Night” by candlelight.
Saturday and Sunday
Afternoon Wine Tunes at Saude Creek 2-5pm
So, I knew that Saude Creek did live music in the summer on Fridays, but apparently they do live music in the winter in the afternoons! This weekend Jocelyn Oldham is playing on Saturday and Dave Pollard is playing on Sunday. A tasting is $7 and BBQ is available for purchase. At least when we went this summer you could bring your own food; I’m not sure if that’s still the case but you could call ahead and ask. Sounds like a great way to escape the holiday bustle!
2nd Sunday Art Festival 11am-5pm
Sunday’s going to be a great time to be in Merchant’s Square. It’s the holiday art festival, the Christmas Carol in-a-box, Father Christmas strolling (3:30-6:30), carolers, all that stuff. Grab some hot cocoa and get out there!
Featured Event This Week! (I will be there, come join if you’d like!)
The icerink is open generally all evenings and all day on weekends. I will be at the Iceburg icerink at Mid County Park at 3pm on Sunday to review it for the blog. If you’d like to join, come along!
If none of this tickles your fancy, of course there are more events on the calendar. Some to consider are another concert of the Messiah, in case you missed the one last week, the lights in Newport News Park, a gingerbread house competition, and non-holiday stuff like $5 yoga, music jams, open mics, movies, and more.
