Capitol Holiday Music Program

Holidays at the Capitol

Every December, enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday during your trip to the Capitol! 

Admission is always FREE!

Get ready for some holiday fun on your next December visit to the California State Capitol!

To set a festive stage and spread holiday cheer, beautiful vintage decorations create a lovely backdrop for a variety of diverse and amazing live holiday musical performances in the Capitol Rotunda each day.

This special holiday experience is made possible by the State Capitol Museum and California State Parks in association with the California State Legislature Joint Rules Committee, the Governor’s Office, and the Department of General Services who have worked collaboratively to preserve holiday traditions inside the Capitol.
