Boston Things to See and Do

  • Boston Ballet presents The Nutcracker

    Tchaikovsky's classic Christmas ballet is a holiday favorite, and the Boston ballet puts on a rousing rendition of this magical story. Join the Sugar Plum Fairy, Snow Queen and other whimsical characters as they create a spectacular holiday show.
  • A Christmas Story The Musical

    Enjoy the delightful story of Little Ralphie Parker and his quest for a Red Rider rifle set to music at the Wang Theatre this Christmas season. Based on the beloved holiday film, this engaging performance features witty dialogue and a beautiful score.
  • Holiday Pops at the historic Symphony Hall

    Jam to big band sounds at the historic Symphony Hall with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops, a cheerful concert featuring sing-along tunes and a visit from Mr. Claus. One of the most popular Boston holiday events, this special concert series is likely to sell out, so purchase your tickets in advance.
  • First Night

    Taking place on the evening of December 31, Boston's First Night Festival is the country's largest and oldest New Year's Eve party. Ring in 2014 with a Grand Procession, ice sculptures and a breathtaking fireworks display above the city and its beautiful harbor.
