  • Festival of Cheer
    The Festival of Cheer celebrates the holidays with a wintry mix of cultural performances, fun park entertainment, and visits with Santa, while piling on tons of snow to recreate the magic of a white Christmas in the desert. Kids 12 and under can leap around a bouncy house, dig into the slush for a massive snowball fight in the play land, or get their faces painted like their favorite pet or clown philosopher. In respect for the citizens of his winter wonderland, Santa smiles for pictures with both the naughty and nice and doles out take-home souvenirs. Cultural presentations feature live dance and music by Romanian, Mexican, German, African, and Irish troupes. Meanwhile, families can wield their provided passport to sample traditional cuisines and cultural histories from various country-representative booths. Children under 6 receive free admission, and all food and games are included in admission.

  • Live Nation National
    Hershey Theatre The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.
