Holidays at Whitaker Center

Let Whitaker Center be your home for the holidays this winter!

With events in all three Whitaker Center venues, we’ve got plenty of holiday fun to unwrap. Holiday films, seasonal performances, and our newest holiday exhibit Whitaker Wonderland come together to give your family a trip they’ll never forget.

This year's holiday exhibit, Whitaker Wonderland offers indoor winter fun for the whole family!
