Celebrate the Holidays with the Matthews!

November 19, 2019

The holiday season is right around the corner which means the Matthews staff is busy decorating, listening to Christmas music, and getting in the spirit for all of our upcoming events. Christmas is a magical time of year anyway, but there always seems to be a bit more magic in the historic setting of the Matthews Opera House. 

So this December, we hope we’ll see you and your loved ones at some of our holiday events. Want to know the best part? Several of our Christmas events are free to the public! Ready to celebrate with us? Mark your calendars for these events:
