Each year at Christmastime, Temple Square is filled with holiday-themed events for one and all.

Each year, the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, prepares to usher in the special spirit of the Christmas and New Year season with lights, nativities, lanterns, and garlands.

In addition to the visual feast prepared on Temple Square for the winter season, the Church organizes a lineup of holiday concerts and other events that offer visitors acoustic experiences full of holiday cheer.

Upcoming events are listed below. Some event information is not yet available. More information is available on the Temple Square Events page.
