This season, escape, gather and refresh with celebrations vibrant and diverse in A CITY UNEXPECTED.
Make plans to visit Woodstock and experience vibrant shopping, authentic sounds, and organic tastes this holiday season
The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta is transforming into a winter wonderland for the holiday season. It’s the nearest outlet shopping to Atlanta with nearly 100 name brand stores.
On Festive Fridays from 6-8 pm, there will be a 100% chance of snow, games for kids, a light show, and even a well-known DJ spinning Christmas classics old and new.
Santa is at the shoppes on Sundays from 1-5pm in the center court. Plus there are strolling holiday carolers.
At Alpine Bakery, the cookie possibilities seem endless. With 22 varieties of cookies, some people say they’re showing up. We still think they’ll be on Santa’s nice list though. Get one cookie or one pound. Cookies also come in trays up to 95 piece assortments. Pignoli, Amaretti, Chocolate Espresso, Double Mint Chocolate, Cranberry White, Chocolate Oatmeal… Make your list and check it twice!
UPDATE: SOLD OUT
At Berry Patch Farms, Christmas is their favorite season. Christmas is all about family, friends and the spirit of giving. They want to give you the experience of spending time with loved ones while you pick out the perfect tree. After cutting down your tree, you will want to rest and sit on the porch eating a warm funnel cake and sipping some hot apple cider!

“Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?!” Charlie Brown exclaims in A Charlie Brown Christmas. “Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about” answers Linus in a quiet, matter-of-fact tone. For many, A Charlie Brown Christmas and the accompanying score by Vince Guaraldi answer Charlie Brown’s question perfectly.
Jeffrey Bützer and T.T. Mahony with Mike Beshera and a small chorus of guest singers will perform Guaraldi’s score to ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ with a spirit only fitting of Charlie Brown himself. By relying both on an honest presentation of Guaraldi’s intentions for the record and enough improvisation to keep their jazz credibility in check, the trio are in finer form each year. There is perhaps no better Christmas album than this 40-minute score featuring all the hushed, memorable, but often melancholy undertones that define the holiday. And there is perhaps no better band performing it than Bützer, Mahony, and Beshera.
As with years past, this show finds the trio pulling out a few extra surprises to make these shows ones to remember. This year, the trio will augment their lineup to also perform selections from Phil Spector’s seminal LP A Christmas Gift For You.
