Jolly Creek Holiday Festival Brings Back Grand Floridian Society Orchestra Members, A Holiday Village, Christmas Crafts, Santa, Snow, and More to Central Florida; Tickets Now on Sale

Sleigh bells are ringing all season long at Jolly Creek Holiday Festival — an all-new
event featuring an outdoor Christmas concert series, dazzling lights,
and visits from Santa Claus himself.


Jolly Creek features a Holiday Village for families to explore and enjoy. The Festival
Main Stage will be situated within the heart of the village, and will feature the
Jolly Creek Society Orchestra, formerly known for their renowned seasonal holiday performances at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.


Joining the Society Orchestra on select nights are a contemporary acappella
group known as The Mistletones, and a retro vocal trio called The Vocalitas. More
acts will be added at a later time. Additional experiences can be purchased at a separate price, including unique
Jolly Creek merchandise, specialty food and beverage offerings, marketplace items from vendors, and crafting kits for families to design their own personalized
holiday souvenirs.


Included with your ticket are socially-distanced meetings with Santa and a magical snowfall!

Jolly Creek was created to help keep artists and entertainers who have recently
been impacted by furloughs and layoffs involved in paid gigs during the Holiday
season. In addition to the Main Stage acts, Jolly Creek has a team of about 20 paid
contractors and has generated five contracts for local entertainment companies. A portion of the proceeds from this event will also be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Additional donations will be accepted during the event from guests who wish to contribute directly. The Machado Farm Foundation, a nonprofit rescue farm, has partnered with Jolly
Creek to provide face masks with a festive flair for the Jolly Creek team. They will
also be selling several exclusive candles and boutique soaps created exclusively for the Jolly Creek Holiday Festival.

Select evenings will be designated as “Paw-liday” nights. For an additional fee,
guests may bring their canine companions inside Jolly Creek and get photos of their pups with Santa. Breed and weight restrictions apply and vaccination records will be required. See for more details.
