STAY TUNED FOR ALTERNATIVE 2020 WINTER HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS!

2020 has posed many challenges for events that bring our community together. Despite these challenges, the City of Marietta will hold alternative winter holiday celebrations. Although our Tree Lighting event will be different this year, our holiday cheer will not. Stay tuned for upcoming holiday celebration announcements!

Based on guidance and information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and out of an abundance of caution for the health of our staff and community ALL Special Events have been suspended or canceled until further notice.

We are taking these precautionary measures to keep our staff, community and those most vulnerable safe and healthy. City facilities and programs/events which are closed, canceled or postponed will be posted on our COVID-19 webpage and will be updated daily. Please visit http://www.mariettaga.gov/1357/COVID-19-Information to view additional information.

 


Kick off the holiday season with The City of Marietta’s Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in conjunction with the arrival of Santa Claus in Glover Park on the Marietta Square. The fun begins at 4:00PM with performances by local school choruses. Santa makes his grand entrance via a City of Marietta firetruck at 5:20PM followed by the lighting of the City’s Christmas Tree at 6:00pm. Additionally, children can meet Santa until 8:00PM that evening.
