The Battery Atlanta is the one-stop destination for holiday happenings this December! The highly-walkable, open-air campus allows for more socially distanced outdoor activities, including holiday shopping at local boutiques and leisurely strolling to see festive décor like the Plaza Tree. Gift-givers will delight loved ones with homemade and artisanal goods from small businesses such as Sugarboo & Co., Baseballism, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, and more. Families and friends can enjoy cheerful spirits at one-of-a-kind dining concepts and discover joyful visits from Santa Claus, all month long! Children will marvel at the re-imagined, contactless experience with Ole Saint Nick at Santa’s Post Office, and spectators of all ages will enjoy bundling up on the Plaza Green for the popular Xfinity Movie Series.
Details and hours of operation are subject to change. Visitors are asked to follow public safety guidelines while on property.

Families are invited to drop off their handwritten letters to Santa – postage not required – in person at his official Atlanta outpost on Heritage Court across from Wahlburgers.
