There is no denying that the holiday season brings a distinct feeling of joy, love and fun that is enhanced by festivals and carol singing. Tucson has something festive for everyone, from various performances by popular theaters around town to Fourth Avenue’s Winter Street Fair.

The fair, running Friday, Dec. 9, to Sunday, Dec. 11, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., is taking place “along Fourth Avenue in the Heart of Tucson, between Ninth Street and University Boulevard,” according to its website.

True Concord Voices and Orchestra performing “Christmas Lessons and Carols by Candlelight”

For its 13th season, True Concord will perform “Christmas Lessons and Carols by Candlelight,” a community-oriented event where nuance is expressed through candlelight and the audience caroling with the performers.

“This program tends to be a favorite with our audiences,” said music director Eric Holtan. “The performing spaces are small, so there is an intimacy to the setting which is enhanced by the candlelight and audience participation.”

This event, which runs from Thursday, Dec. 8, to Sunday, Dec. 11, provides locations, times and tickets online.
