Hi everyone,

December is a big month with a lot of holiday-focused events taking place in Kingston. So I’ll do a little bit of a different format, listing holiday shows, holiday markets and events, and then just any non-related events. As a big comedy fan, I also want to give a shoutout to the Yuk Yuk’s Stand Up Comedy Show which takes place this Saturday at Spearhead.

Hopefully we get some nice weather for it all!

I also want to mention that there is a Kingston Family Puppet Show on December 10th and I am giving away free tickets for it. To participate in the contest, visit our Facebook.

Here are the featured events this month and remember to visit YGKEvents.com to see the full listing of events taking place in December. As always, check with the venue before going etc as dates and plans can change, especially with the weather!
