Christmas Revels Press and Media

So the shortest day came, and the year died...

Each mid-winter, the Revels brings to life a grand celebration of traditions and cultures from around the world. We create joy with the songs, dances, and stories—present in every culture—that mark the turning of the year in all its forms. We build community and connection through our unique theatrical production, connecting audience and performers, and reminding us that, within our diversity and across generations, there is a beautiful continuity of human experience!

With the skirling of pipes and the swirling of kilts, the Christmas Revels celebrates the turning of the year in Scottish style. Join us this December in the land of Robbie Burns as we pass the shortest day in song, dance, and spirited folk tales. Be there for haggis and Hogmanay, first-footing, wool-waulking, mouth music, and even Guising! Of course the Lord of the Dance will welcome you, and Abbots Bromley Antler Dance will cast its mysterious spell.

There will be plaids a-plenty, as Scots of all ages gather the clans to observe the return of the sun in the Bay Area’s most treasured holiday tradition.
