Free Holiday and Christmas Events in Atlanta

The holiday season in Atlanta is magical but creating family memories isn't always cheap. We searched for the best free Christmas events and holiday activities happening this season in Atlanta. After all, shopping for gifts, attending holiday shows, and purchasing photo keepsakes with Santa, has our wallets take a beating. Don't worry: There are lots of great free Christmas events and seasonal happenings! Our list has lightings (both menorahs and Christmas trees), festivals, and holiday markets. Consider it our (free) holiday gift to you! And speaking of affordable gifts, we also have the scoop on Cool Stocking Stuffers for Kids for $10 or Less.

For more seasonal highlights, be sure to check out our Christmas Activities and Holiday Guide for Atlanta Kids and of course, our always-up-to-date Family Activity Calendar!
