Over two decades ago, the tradition of Capitol Christmas and the Festival of Lights & Trees began. In 1997 the theatre volunteers started this small-town holiday tradition, raffling off a few trees from our main stage. Not only has Capitol Christmas grown to be one of the theatre’s most important annual fundraising events, but it has matured into one of the most cherished holiday traditions for our community.

Announcing the 24th Anniversary of Capitol Christmas
and the Festival of Lights & Trees!

Plus! Special Festive Programming

This year, to keep our visitors safe, we have created an experience allowing for socially distanced tree viewings on-site showcasing the new spaces offered through the Capitol Theatre’s Expansion Project as well as an interactive virtual component that allows guests the ability to enjoy Capitol Christmas from the comfort of their own home!

We invite you to join us in-person or online as we celebrate twenty-four years of the joy of the holiday season.
