Homemade Holiday Shorts returns for its 21st Anniversary Year with an exciting slate of guests, wonderful holiday music and a delicious feast.

For one evening each year in December, friends of WHQR gather in our MC Erny Gallery and around their radios at home to listen to holiday stories read live by a panel of entertaining guests. Our guests include wonderful radio legends, actors, writers and performers reading emotional and funny tales of the season.

Homemade Holiday Shorts will begin at 6pm on Sunday, December 11th.
Doors open: 5:20pm. Reception: 7pm.

Tickets are $35 each (includes the performance and reception) and can be purchased at whqr.org. All proceeds benefit WHQR.  BUY TICKETS HERE. Purchase your tickets early as last year's event sold out.
