What's Happening in Birmingham This December

From the Birmingham Village Players' performance of 'Pinocchio' to dozens of holiday events, there's a lot to do around Birmingham this month.

Shain Park's new holiday tree is lit, the weather is getting colder and the third annual Winter Markt has come to a close. This must mean one thing: December has come to Birmingham.

Patch will keep you up to date with what's going on every week, but we've got your monthly look ahead to keep as a handy reference.

The thing is, we know we've missed some events — some of which haven't been announced yet — so leave us a comment and let us know what else is going on this month. Our goal is to keep you informed.
