The Skirball's Hanukkah Festival is presented virtually in 2020.


The Skirball Hanukkah Family Festival honors the light of creativity and hope that helps the whole community achieve great things together. Families of all backgrounds are welcome to revel in the spirit of the holiday with music, dance, and storytelling. 

Guests can get in the holiday spirit with musical performances by Klezmer Juice, hear classic Hanukkah tunes and folk music by fiddler and accordionist duo Zingarella, and be dazzled by capoeira performed by Dana Maman and Friends.

Hands-on workshops offer the chance to create a one-of-a-kind art project or make a delicious treat. Noah’s Ark storytellers recount the age-old tale of Hanukkah in both English and Spanish, followed by a special Hanukkah sing-along. Then author Alan Silberberg reads his book Meet the Latkes.

Advance tickets recommended: (877) SCC-4TIX, skirball.org, or on site.( Discounts, coupons, and other ticket promotions are not valid on festival day.)

See our Hanukkah Guide for more days and ways to celebrate the Festival of Light.
