First Friday December 2020 – Festivities

December 4 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for a festive December First Friday as we celebrate the official opening of The Flying V Poutinerie and an outdoor mini performance of Christmas City Follies from the actors of Touchstone Theatre. The Flying V Poutinerie is one of the only Canadian cuisine restaurants in the Lehigh Valley, specializing in poutine, peameal bacon, and Montreal smoked meat. Owners, Matt and Christie Vymazal make each dish fresh and from scratch. Offering indoor and outdoor dining, we invite you to join us at 6pm on First Friday, as we cut the ribbon and officially welcome The Flying V to the SouthSide. Special Performance by Musician Pentley Holmes!

At 6:30pm the actors of Touchstone Theatre will take over 324 S. New Street at the SouthSide Downtown Christmas Tree with an outdoor mini performance of the beloved Christmas City Follies XXI. Audience members must wear masks to ensure safety and social distancing is required. The SouthSide Arts District will provide free masks and hand sanitizer for patrons should they need it.

A second performance will begin at 7:30pm in the same location for those looking for some after-dinner fun! Christmas City Follies has been singing, laughing and entertaining audiences across the Lehigh Valley for the last 20 years. This year, a streamed video edition of Follies will be available featuring Touchstone favorites like the Old Guy, Little Red and the Shopping Cart Ballet. Don’t miss this holiday tradition, visit to purchase tickets starting November 20th to see the full version of Follies and support Touchstone Theatre from the comfort of your home.
