Christmas at Augustana

Christmas at Augustana has become one of the most treasured traditions at Augustana College. Another treasured tradition is our special invitation for ELCA pastors and rostered ministers, with one guest, to join us.

This year, Christmas at Augustana will have two performances on Saturday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. As special guests, we would like to offer you two (2) free tickets for you and a guest to attend either performance. NIS rostered ministers, see your message from Augustana or contact for the gift code.

Presale for tickets will begin Sept. 15. Go to to order tickets or call the Augustana Ticket Office at 309-794-7306 to order. Additional tickets may be purchased at the same time at the normal price online or by calling the Ticket Office.

Other events
• Between the two performances, a Christmas Dinner will open to the public in The Gerber Center Dining Hall. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the ticket office. Tickets are $11.45 for adults and $6 for children.
• At 6 p.m., Augustana President Steve Bahls will light the Christmas tree on the Quad behind Old Main. Join us there for holiday treats and festivities, including a life-sized snow globe!
