Since we couldn’t begin to pick just ten events for this month’s Top 10 list, instead we created a list of 25 days of Christmas Fun in Lakeland.

We’ve even included a printable calendar for you to put on the fridge or save to your phone!

Use the calendar or the links below to get more information on dates, times, location, and registration/tickets (if applicable). Our calendar includes Lakeland Christmas events, ideas for family activities across Polk County, and our popular Christmas Light Driving Guide. These events are fun, family friendly, and most of them are free!

Note that the Christmas Calendar is easiest to save and/or print from a laptop. Various settings on mobile devices may prevent you from opening this as a printable or clickable PDF as it is designed.
