Homemade Holiday Shorts 2019

Homemade Holiday Shorts returns for its 24th 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 entertaining guests. This year, our storytellers are Rachel Lewis Hilburn and Eleanor Stafford reading emotional and funny tales of the season. And there will be plenty of holiday music from great local surf band, Da Howlies.

Homemade Holiday Shorts is a live broadcast and begins at exactly 6pm on Sunday, December 8th.

Doors open: 5:20pm. Reception: 7pm.

Tickets are $35 each (includes the performance and reception) and can be purchased here. All proceeds benefit WHQR.

Purchase your tickets early, as last year's event sold out!

The event is broadcast live on WHQR 91.3fm at 6pm. The MC Erny Gallery at WHQR is located on the third floor of 254 N. Front Street in downtown Wilmington.
