“Happy Christmas Street Party” with Jolly Food, Entertainment, and Merch Coming November 13th through December 27th to Universal Studios Japan

With COVID-19 still raging worldwide, Universal Studios Japan has elected to hold smaller-scale holiday seasons this year, with smaller summer and Halloween events so far. So instead of a full Universal Crystal Christmas, the park says they will take a break and host a unique program this year only to celebrate the holidays with safety in mind. So, the Happy Christmas Street Party will come to Universal Studios Japan from November 13th through December 27th!

This year’s holiday season will feature two special entertainment programs, delicious holiday food, and many Universal friends in festive Christmas costumes!

Entertainment

The headline entertainment offering will be the Happy Christmas Street Party at Mel’s Stage in Hollywood. Guests can join friends from Peanuts, Hello Kitty, and Sesame Street in their holiday costumes along with snowmen and dancers to dance and sing for the holiday season! The show will be performed 2-3 times daily, with times to be announced.

Another show, called New York Christmas Wish, will provide a more mature story for the holidays with a beautiful singer and the gentle tones of the violin to warm your heart for the holidays.
