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 www.Jolly-Creek.com for more details.
Enhanced health and safety measures, as well as social distancing guidelines will be in effect during the event. Guests are required to wear face masks at all times unless eating or drinking while stationary.
Jolly Creek Holiday Festival and Marketplace runs select nights Nov. 20 through Jan. 2. Tickets are on sale now. Date-specific admission starts at $14 for children and $22 for adults with free parking included. Ticket pricing varies according to date.
Guests looking to ring in the New Year can enjoy the New Year’s Eve Bash. This separately-ticketed event includes food and beverage, live performances by the Society Orchestra, and a DJ.
Jolly Creek Holiday Festival, Paw-liday Nights, and the News Year’s Eve Bash are all located at Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures (2001 E. Southport Road, Kissimmee, FL 34746), about 45 minutes south of Disney Springs.
