Mammoth Cave National Park is holding their 33rd annual Cave Sing this weekend.

Sunday’s free event features a capella performances of Christmas carols by the Caveman Chorus and the Glasgow Brass Quintet, as well as storytelling and a visit from Santa Claus himself.

Although the Cave Sing only began in 1980, the idea for the annual event originated back in 1883 when local residents held a holiday celebration inside the cave.

We hope many local residents will return again this year for a fun afternoon underground. The acoustics of the cave are excellent whether listening to performers or singing along. Sarah Craighead, Superintendent of Mammoth Cave National Park

Anyone visiting for the Cave Sing should also take the opportunity to check out the newly renovated Visitor Center which was the subject of an open house earlier this week.

The Schedule

  • 1:15 pm – Storytelling begins in the Mammoth Cave Hotel Rotunda room.
  • 2:00 pm – Depart for the cave to listen to the Caveman Chorus and the Glasgow Brass Quintet.
  • 3:30 pm – Complimentary refreshments will be served at the Mammoth Cave Hotel and Santa Claus arrives.

For more information on the event call Mammoth Cave National Park at 270-758-2180.
