Celebrate the heart of the holiday season in the heart of the North Shore! Every Saturday from Thanksgiving until Christmas, 2:00 - 4:00 PM in Port Clinton Square, enjoy festive entertainment, delicious treats and more as you browse the unique shops and restaurants of Highland Park’s Central Business District. Joining us each week will be Ravinia Brewing Company, with cider and festive beers available for purchase.

November 27: The Heart of the Holidays begins with seasonal music, a visit from Santa, roaming carolers, and more on Small Business Saturday, with holiday cookies.

December 4: Celebrate Hanukkah with the music of the Maxwell Street Klezmer Quartet and sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) from That Little French Guy.

December 11: Sing along to your favorite holiday songs - and some others! - with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons-inspired quartet, The Four C-Notes, with roasted chestnuts.

December 18: Join us for an ice carving demonstration from World Class Ice Sculpture, roaming carolers, and holiday treats.

The Heart of the Holidays events are sponsored by the City of Highland Park and Ravinia Festival, with the support of First Bank of Highland Park and Highland Park Bank & Trust.
