EverOut is The Mercury's new website devoted to things to do in Portland and across the Pacific Northwest. It has all the same things you're used to seeing from Mercury EverOut, just in a new spot!
Partaking in holiday cheer ain't easy when a deadly virus continues to confine us to our little rooms, but the freeze isn't stopping local organizations from putting on festive events (as well as noteworthy non-holiday-related happenings) to provide some much-needed coziness, entertainment, and maybe even momentary delight this month. We've compiled the most major goings-on below, from Portland Playhouse's virtual arts festival Wonderland to Portland5's Center for the Arts' Hip Hop Nutcracker, and from a Solstice Party streamed live from Pickathon's Portland headquarters to Experience Theatre Project's A Drunk Christmas Carol. See more COVID-safe options on our complete streaming and winter holiday calendars. 

Events are online unless otherwise noted.

THEATER & PERFORMANCE
American Christmas Carol: A Ballet Movie
We think Charles Dickens is rolling in his grave (with delight) at this dance-theater interpretation of A Christmas Carol speckled with Frank Sinatra tunes. He'd be especially impressed by the fact that you can stream it on-demand throughout the holiday season, and more so by the sheer existence of the internet. 
(Through December 28)
