Christmas Concerts 2022: Christmas Shows, Holiday Activities and Things to Do

November 09, 2022 by Stephen Spiewak

Christmas Concerts

If you're looking for Christmas events and concerts in 2022, Vivid Seats has you covered.

There are plenty of holiday and Christmas concerts throughout the country, and Vivid Seats can help you find the best options near you to ring in the season with a memorable live performance.

After all, Christmas activities at home can be a lot of fun, but catching a Christmas show for kids with the family can make the holidays extra special.

Some of these Christmas shows are specific to cities like New York, Chicago and San Francisco; however, many top Christmas concerts are touring acts, meaning they should be coming to a theater near you.

Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO)
