Christmas Celebration

Dec. 2, 2022

Welcome the Christmas season with your favorite carols and thousands of twinkling lights at BJU’s annual Christmas Celebration and Carol Sing! This free community event includes an Alumni Holiday Market, the University Symphonic and Combined Choirs Christmas concert and a BJUGrass Concert with special guest artist Ben Rochester. If you have children or grandchildren, at 4 p.m. we open our Christmas Village including crafts, Christmas story telling, Christmas cookie decorating and much more.

We are providing dinner options in the BJU Dining Common and in the many foodtrucks.

Extra free parking is available in the BJU Press Mall Parking Lot (shuttles available every 15 minutes) and at White Oak Baptist Church. View campus map.
