NOLA ChristmasFest will take place for 10 days starting on Wednesday, December 21st through Friday, December 30th at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

NOLA ChristmasFest is a family friendly event, where there is truly something for everyone to enjoy. Daily events include story time, sing-a-longs, dance performances, holiday movies, craft making, shopping at Yuletide Market and more. There are also private skating lessons available.

There are also some delicious dessert options like bread pudding, ice cream sundaes or smores at Mrs. Claus Sweet Shop or you can enjoy an adult beverage or some hot cocoa at the Polar Pub.

On Friday December 23rd, there will also be an opportunity to Skate with Santa. You will get to meet Santa, Mrs. Claus and friends and enjoy some festive fruit, a hot cocoa bar, chicken & waffles, coffee and more.
