Family Christmas Activities Across Utah

It’s time to get out there and spend some quality time with the whole family! Lucky for us, there are a ton of things to do in Utah for Christmas around this time of year, and we just thought we’d compile a list of them so you don’t have to go searching for stuff to do. We tried to cover across most of Northern Utah so we didn’t leave anyone out. Check it out!

Christmas Activities, 2018

Go See a Christmas Play at Eccles Theater

This year, Eccles is showing a live production of A Magical Cirque Christmas!

If you love circuses and Christmas, then come check out this very entertaining, mind-blowing play in South Salt Lake on December 29th. This will be a fun time to remember with your family! For more information, go here.

Zoo Lights

All month long you can go see a bunch of amazing animals, while simultaneously fulfilling your need for Christmas cheer with all of the beautiful lights. It’s gonna be cold, so dress appropriately, but this is such a cool annual event! For ticketing and more, go here.

Draper’s Tree of Life

The tree is lit, and it’s just as beautiful as it was last year. Come check out this fun park full of Christmas beauty and make sure you bring the cocoa! For more information, go here.

North Pole Express

This is such a creative idea! Up in Heber you can ride this train with a party of 15 and sing along with Christmas songs! They offer hot cocoa and cookies, and we’re sure that you’ll feel like you’re on the Polar Express. Check out event details here.

Christmas at City Creek Center

This beautiful shopping center has a lot to keep you occupied during the Christmas season. You can walk around and see all of the decorations and go see Santa Claus. There are even fountain shows and amazing displays to check out.


If you live a little more south but still want to experience some amazing lights in an amazing location, this is the place for you! Thanksgiving Point offers hot chocolate and there’s plenty of space for your children to run around and see beautiful lights!

Each of these events are awesome and super family friendly! We hope you have a lovely holiday season and stay tuned for the next day in 12 days of Burgmas!
