16 Places to Find FREE Holiday Entertainment

Don’t let a tight budget prevent your family from enjoying a special Christmas season. Here are 16 ideas to find free holiday entertainment, and they’re great ideas! My own family has participated in several of these ideas which just goes to show that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on admission. Idea No. 2 actually had us in tears one year because afterwards our city launched breathtaking fireworks from our downtown bridges. It was lovely, and we still talk about it to this day.

There are three other ideas I’d like to mention. One is to ask friends if they are participating in a music or dance recital, and then attend it. My family has been on the giving and receiving end of recitals (attending and participating), and I can tell you that you will be so blessed either way. Think of how special you will make the participant feel, and these events are usually full of merriment and festive Christmas themes.

Another way to find free holiday entertainment that’s not listed in the 16 is to volunteer at a local rescue mission or food bank. You might be shocked to find that your family holds close at heart the time you spent together serving others.

I want to add a special emphasis to Idea No. 5. Attending a Christmas cantata or program or Christmas Eve service at a local church is a wonderful idea. They usually have special music and love to have visitors! If you’re shy, you can keep to yourself in the candle light. But if you’re not, they will welcome you with open arms! Unless it’s a specialized program with reserved seating, this option is always free.

May you and your family have a blessed month and a glorious Christmas season!
