Caroling on God’s Acre

December 24, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

New Canaan Traditions Caroling on Gods Acre

Caroling Returns to God’s Acre on Christmas Eve!

After a year off due to the pandemic The God’s Acre Christmas Carol Committee is happy to
announce that The Annual Carol Sing on God’s Acre will return in person this year at 6:30 p.m.
on Christmas Eve, Friday December 24 at the top of God’s Acre. The annual community
tradition was begun over 100 years ago. If you are new to town, make plans to include this
quintessential community event in your Christmas Eve activities!

The bandstand will be constructed by a local contractor and the New Canaan Beautification
League has volunteered to decorate it with wreathes, greens and bows. The New Canaan Town
Band will play eight classic Christmas carols while hundreds of families, individuals and friends
from the community will gather for the sing along.

Song sheets will available and distributed at the Carol Sing courtesy of Rand Insurance. Song
sheets will also be printed on the back page of the New Canaan Advertiser.

The cost to decorate the tree, erect the bandstand, and other minor costs are paid for through
donations which can be sent to the New Canaan Community Foundation at 111 Cherry Street,
New Canaan, CT 06840 and please write God’s Acre Carols in the memo.
