2018 Holiday Season in Allentown

During the 2018 holiday season, there’s something for everyone in Allentown, ranging from a live performance of A Charlie Brown Christmas, to tours of some of the mansions found along Millionaires Row. Only Allentown could pack this much fun entertainment into a single holiday season. That’s because the district is home to a wide range of cultural venues, including historic churches, Kleinhans Music Hall, a Karpeles Manuscript Museum, the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site, and The Theatre of Youth. So grab your friends and your family, and experience the holidays the way they were meant to be experienced. Following is a showcase of events that have been compiled by the Allentown Association.
