34th Annual Carols by Candlelight
The spectacular family holiday concert Carols by Candlelight will take place on Friday and Saturday, December 8 & 9 at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido. Now in its 34th year, proceeds from these two concerts will go to Rady Children’s Hospital.
The two nights of Christmas-inspired concerts will feature country music stars singing their hits and favorite holiday songs. This year’s headliner is multi-platinum recording artist Deana Carter, making her first Carols by Candlelight headline appearance. Veteran performers Anna Vaus, and Steve Vaus will also be headlining alongside Charlie Worsham and Back to the Garden.
Following the on-stage performances, to close the evening, the audience and stars meet in the courtyard and sing “Silent Night” by candlelight. In addition to the live entertainment, the benefit also features a live auction offering autographed guitars and other items, as well as silent auction items and raffle prizes, donated by sponsoring organizations.
