Holiday Events

Feel the magic of all the holidays in Raleigh, N.C., with family fun outdoor events in the spring, patriotic Fourth of July events in the summer, spooky Halloween events in the fall and warmhearted holiday celebrations in the winter. The cool air of spring is perfect for Easter egg hunts, where family and friends make precious memories. Get spooked at haunted attractions, screenings of classic horror movies and kid-friendly corn mazes around Halloween.

The winter holidays are celebrated joyously in the Raleigh area with the Ipreo Raleigh Winterfest, the lighting of a beautifully illuminated tree in downtown Raleigh's City Plaza and much more. The annual Kwanzaa celebration in the town of Cary, Christmas events and Hanukkah celebrations are always popular. Welcome the New Year at First Night Raleigh, complete with festivities and the annually-anticipated acorn drop. Celebrate the holidays in style, Raleigh style.
