Event description
The 34th annual Christmas Revels celebrates the Winter Solstice with music, dance, folk traditions, and merriment for all ages.

About this Event

It is the turning of the year, and the spirits of Solstice revelers, driven from their customary haunts, are coming together. They summon the Revels family to sing the glorious music of many ages and myriad places. They enact familiar customs, dances and joyful festivities drawn from the many decades of Revels celebration. Young and old, the spirits embrace the rich variety of favorite traditions.

Times shift and the world changes, but wherever these spirits gather, that place is where the heart and soul of Revels lives.

Not specific to any location nor time period, this year is about history -our history- and togetherness through generations and culture. We are recalling our favorite songs and dances from the totality of our Christmas Revels, using our entire range of costumes, customs, and traditions. This is a show you do not want to miss!

Join us this December for our annual Christmas Revels -a celebration of the winter Solstice. Keep the tradition alive.

The Christmas Revels is a joyous production welcoming the return of the light back from the darkness of winter. Performed by a number of highly-talented professional actors, singers, musicians, dancers, and artists, and featuring a chorus of ages 7 and up, the audience is drawn into a magical revelry of song and dance.

The mission of California Revels is to promote the celebratory and community building power of the performing arts through a unique and innovative form of musical theater that embraces diverse cultures, music, dance, ritual, and folk traditions.
