The Weekender: Christmas is Coming Edition


Christmas is just one weekend away, which means you better get squared away right quick before the whole thing goes down. Presents, eggnog, chestnuts on the open fire… time to start checking everything off the list.

And when you’re done take time to enjoy the cultural fruits of the city before the madness begins.

All Weekend

  • Ballet performance @ Greensboro Day School’s Sloan Theater (GSO), Friday-Saturday
    Greensboro Day School brings the ballet of the Snow Queen to the stage for your viewing pleasure, for two days only. The first performance is held on Friday at 7 p.m. The second takes place on Saturday at 2 p.m.


  • Elf @ Carolina Theatre (GSO), 7 p.m.
    Stop me if you know this one: “He’s an angry little elf.” The Carolina Theatre screens the comedy classic Elf just in time for the holidays and your viewing pleasure. So grab the whole family and sit a spell.
  • Campus Xmas @ HPU (HP), 5:30 p.m.
    It’s that time again for Christmas on the campus of High Point University. Choose from any one of the many activities the university has planned, from horse rides to pictures with Santa to hot cocoa and guided tours and giveaways for the whole family.

  • Gingerbread-house making @ Gibb’s Hundred Brewing (GSO), 6:30 p.m.
