Last Minute Holiday Fun on the North Shore!

The holiday season can oftentimes seem like a chaotic and hectic time, filled with family, friends, food, shopping, loved ones and kids all jam-packed into a couple of quick months! Whether you’re considering buying North Shore real estate or are already a longtime resident of one of the many welcoming areas that comprise the North Shore community, there is still plenty of festive holiday fun to be had! Clients past and present frequently tell me that one of the best parts of living on the North Shore is the endless array of activities, community events and social functions hosted throughout the year. While it can be cold during the holiday season, the North Shore real estate market and surrounding communities are always hot! Here is just a sampling of a few festive events still going on around Chicago’s North Shore – I would highly recommend squeezing one or all of them in if you can!

Free Festive Family Film Fest Presents “Home Alone”
Fri., Dec. 20th, 5 P.M.
The Wilmette Theatre, 1122 Central Ave., Wilmette

Stop by for a free family screening of Christmas classic “Home Alone” at the Wilmette Theatre this Friday! As a longtime North Shore Realtor, this film holds a particular fondness for me as the infamous house featured throughout the film is located right here on Chicago’s North Shore! With “Home Alone” having been filmed right in our neck of the woods (in Winnetka), those of us living on the North Shore enjoy both the humorous, fun tale as well as the familiar sights featured in the box office smash. Be sure to stop by the theatre during business hours to pick up your free passes for the special screening. 

Amahl and the Night Visitors @ Winnetka Community House
Sat., Dec. 21st, 3 P.M. and 7 P.M. and Sun., Dec. 22nd, 3 P.M.
Winnetka Community House, 620 Lincoln Ave., Winnetka

A magical holiday classic appropriate for all ages, Amahl and the Night Visitors offers a unique fusion of singing, dancing and acting alongside their live orchestra for a fantastic, family-friendly holiday story. Support Chicago’s North Shore local arts by catching one of three shows scheduled for the upcoming weekend. Featuring both local talent as well as professional vocalists and musicians, this rendition clocks in at just under one hour – Perfect for those with small children!

Wonderland Express Christmas Concert
Sat., Dec. 21st, 2 P.M. and 4 P.M.
Chicago Botanic Garden, 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe

Enjoy a festive Christmas brass concert at one of the Chicago’s North Shore cornerstones – The Chicago Botanic Garden! One hour concerts will be held at 2 P.M. and 4 P.M., and will feature spirited holiday favorites for all ages. Tickets can be purchased in advance or the day of and include the concert and access to the Wonderland Express exhibit. If you’re looking for a reason to get out of the house and do something both local and for the holidays, this fun concert is it!
