5 Things to Do During Christmas Weekend in Milwaukee

We rounded up this season’s holiday guides so that you have plenty to do during a 2020 Christmas.

1. Watch an Under-the-Radar Holiday Film

FILM

Sure, everyone knows about A Christmas Story, but we want you to spice up your holiday this year with some of the lesser-known, holiday-adjacent movies. Our resident film writer rounded up four for you to enjoy. 

2. Catch a Holiday Concert or Performance

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Local performing arts groups had to adapt this year in order for the show to go on. We put together a guide of six to catch before January. Most of the options are virtual and have run-times past Christmas.

MILWAUKEE GUIDES

If you haven’t checked out all of the holiday lights our town has to offer, you’re missing out. We found you 13 drive-thrus in Milwaukee and the surrounding area. 

4. Pick Up Christmas Cookies

DINING GUIDES

Munch on Santa, his reindeer, Frosty and more from local bakeries. We found you six that have great holiday offerings. Supporting small businesses never tasted so sweet.

Do you know the story of the Schuster’s Christmas parade and the streetcar Santa? It was a holiday tradition in Milwaukee dating back to 1927. Learn all about it and share the piece of local trivia over Christmas dinner.
