Holiday Display in the Grand Court
The Holiday Display in the Grand Court sets the scene for your entire shopping experience. This year, shoppers will be greeted with a 35-foot tree that screams “holiday spirit.” Grand Court will also have modern mirrored gift boxes and a light-up installation that ties the entire display together with a contemporary twist. Just be sure to take at least one family photo with this picture-perfect background.
Holiday Entertainment + Holiday Beats at Bev Grand Court
No holiday activity is complete without some classic Christmas tunes. Every Sunday, enjoy your favorite holiday beats while browsing through the shops and checking things off your gift list. Local female DJs will spin as you shop from noon to 4 p.m., making you feel as though you’re in the middle of a holiday rom-com as you move from one store to the next. Every weekend, catch fun holiday acts by modern day carolers, hip hop nutcrackers and more.
Black Friday Shopping
Black Friday shopping is pretty chaotic, especially when it comes to parking. Thankfully, Beverly Center is offering free self-parking all day long for shoppers looking to snag some great deals without the drama. Simply enter the garage, find a spot and get to work. From clothes to home goods, Beverly Center is the ultimate one-stop shop this Black Friday.
Complimentary Santa Photos
There is nothing more nostalgic than being able to look back on holiday photos with Santa. Beverly Center, however, is taking festive to the next level. Each weekend leading up to Christmas, families can gather between noon and 5 p.m. for themed photos with Santa Claus. From Holiday Pajamas and Ugly Sweaters to Santa Paws, these themed photos make for the most spirited memory for you and your little ones to look back on.
