Winter Celebration in The Arboretum at Penn State

December 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

It is nearly time for this year’s Winter Celebration in The Arboretum at Penn State! Everyone is invited to welcome the holiday season on Friday, December 13, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. in the H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens. Seasonal décor will include holiday decorations and trees in the children’s garden, at the overlook pavilion, and along the main walkway. Photo opportunities with Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available at the overlook pavilion.

A highlight of the evening will be performances on the event lawn by two a cappella ensembles, the Pennharmonics from Penn State and the State High Chamber Singers. Performances, which will include a mix of popular and seasonal tunes, will begin at 5:30 p.m. There will be chairs in front of the stage but visitors are also welcome to bring their own chairs. Hot cocoa will be for sale on site. Holiday displays will remain in place until mid-January.
