2019 Christmas Revels

A Solstice Journey Through Time

It is the turning of the year, and the spirits of Solstice revelers, driven from their customary haunts, are coming together.  They summon the Revels family to sing the glorious music of many ages and myriad places. They enact familiar customs, dances and joyful festivities drawn from the many decades of Revels celebration. Young and old, the spirits embrace the rich variety of favorite traditions.

Times shift and the world changes, but wherever these spirits gather, that place is where the heart and soul of Revels lives.

Not specific to any location nor time period, this year is about history -our history- and togetherness through generations and culture. We are recalling our favorite songs and dances from the totality of our Christmas Revels, using our entire range of costumes, customs, and traditions. This is a show you do not want to miss!

Join us this December for our annual Christmas Revels -a celebration of the winter Solstice. Keep the tradition alive.

This year, our festivities will be hosted by the warm and welcoming First Congregational Church, only blocks away from our former home. There will be eight performances from December 13th through the 22nd.

December 13th through 22nd, 2019 at the Sanctuary of First Congregational Church of Oakland.

2501 Harrison Street, Oakland, CA 94612
