Holiday Happenings Guide


You have just found the definitive guide to family-friendly holiday fun in Huntsville, Madison, and Madison County (and sometimes even further). For the fourth year in a row, Rocket City Mom has worked tirelessly to collect all the details on all the holiday fun so you can simply sit back and start marking up your planner while listening to some holiday tunes – scroll to bottom of post for a great playlist. After you’ve made your plans, be sure you share it with a few of your friends so they can join you in the fun.

Do you need Santa photos? We’ve got ’em. Do you like holiday parades, Christmas pageants, tree lightings? We’ve got those too. Along with holiday concerts, sing-a-longs, light shows and more. PLUS, plenty of options for active holiday play because sometimes the kids need to run some energy off. Finally, we’ve listed many of our favorite charities and hope you’ll consider carving out a little time for giving back too.

See something we missed? Send us a note at or submit an event via this form. We’ll be adding events throughout the season so be sure to check back often!
