Christmas Groove: 

Free Benefit Concert
December 9 & 10, 2022 at 7:00PM
Akron Civic Theatre

The Christmas Groove is an annual benefit concert that seeks to raise awareness and benefit those in need in Northeast Ohio. In 2004, a group of friends and fellow musicians assembled for a common purpose: to create a family-friendly concert that would entertain and bless others during the Christmas season. This free concert has grown in popularity and attendance year after year, so come be a part of what has become an annual tradition for thousands of people in Northeast Ohio.  The Christmas Groove features top notch musicians playing and singing Christmas music in modern styles such as rock, blues, jazz, pop and country.  Prepare to be entertained!

There are no tickets and the concert is free to attend. A monetary donation will be collected during the show for our 2022 Christmas Groove beneficiary, the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The Foodbank provides food and other essential items to member hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties. These member programs operate more than 600 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters, and other hunger-relief programs in the neighborhoods and communities where people need food. 100% of all donations at the concert will go directly to the Akron Canton Regional Foodbank.

Doors open at 6pm. Seating is first-come first-served. For more details about the Christmas Groove please visit our website at
