Christmas Events In and Around Marietta

With Thanksgiving just a couple of days away, the next few weeks will be full of Christmas event such as tree lightings, tours, and parades. For many, the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season marks a favorite time of year. For that reason, we have included a list of upcoming Christmas events in and around Marietta and Cobb County:

  • Christmas Tree Lighting at Marietta Square on December 5 in Glover Park. This is an event that adults and children alike enjoy year after year. The festivities are scheduled to start at 5 PM, with Santa arriving on a fire truck at 5:20 PM to light the giant Christmas tree at 6 PM. Santa will remain at the gazebo until 8 PM, visiting with children while many local school choruses perform as entertainment.
  • Santa’s Workshop on the Square. Each weekend throughout December, Santa will be available to visitors at his workshop in Glover Park. Santa will take photos with children, as well as listen to their Christmas list desires. Santa’s hours can be found at
  • Pancakes with Santa at the Marietta First United Methodist Church. On November 23, from 8 AM until 1:30 PM, The Rotary Club of Marietta is sponsoring breakfast with Santa for adults and children alike.

  • Sleighbells on the Square 5K. On December 14, the 13th Annual run/walk will occur on Marietta Square. This is a great opportunity to get in the Christmas spirit while being active.

Many of the staff members at Jones & Swanson will be attending some of these events with our children this year, so we hope to see you there! As always, we urge you to use caution while traveling to and from Christmas events such as these. There will be more vehicles on Marietta roads due to Christmas events on Marietta Square, which often leads to more car accidents.
