The Christmas & New Year’s Eve Festivities Awaiting You in Tbilisi
New Year in Georgia is one of the most important celebrations and everyone waits impatiently for it. For the local population, just as it is in the rest of the world, New Year is a symbol of new hope, wishes, and goals. People in Georgia celebrate the New Year by sitting down to a feast with their family or attending a special event.
A two-week program of concerts, theater shows, film screenings and workshops for young visitors is on at two locations in the Georgian capital to bring festive spirit to locals and visitors.
Launched on December 25 with the unveiling of the city’s central Christmas tree in the ‘Christmas Town,’ the official City Hall program involves dozens of participants, from musical artists and theater troupes to craftspeople and food vendors.
The events are being hosted in the newly renovated historical Orbeliani Square as well as the now-customary spot of the First Republic Square, where Christmas Town has been set up with decorations and a fairground to run from 25 December to 13 January.
On the evening of New Year’s Day, the world-renowned musical project Max the Sax will perform before the audience at 9 PM in the same square.
