We host devotionals, performances, and activities that are family friendly, uplifting, and high quality. Most events are free and open to the public, but please check the details for the event for more information. This list does not include regular worship services or weekly youth activities.

Visitors are welcome and encouraged to come to events. Most events are free to enjoy and are fun for the family. Temple Hill is part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We host Christian events, concerts, performances, devotionals, and musicals along with our Sunday Worship Services. Some events, such as the Lamb of God performance, are done in collaboration with local Oakland Christian churches and organizations.
Temple Hill is home to the Temple Hill Dance Company, Temple Hill Choir, and Temple Hill Symphony. These organizations have been sharing their talents with Northern California and the Bay Area for years and continue to provide uplifting performances for residents.
During the Holiday Season, Temple Hill becomes illuminated by more than 500,000 Christmas lights. Bring your family to enjoy the lights along with Christmas performances and events.
Frequently Asked Questions
The majority of the events held at Temple Hill are free of charge. Some require you to reserve tickets in advance. Check out the event page for more information about whether a ticket is required and whether there is a charge.
Some of the events require a ticket to get in. However, you may still be able to get in even if you don’t have a ticket. For performances that charge for admission, please check with them to see if there are ways to get a ticket.
If you do not have a ticket, arrive early and there are at least 5 other ways to be admitted:
- At performance time, unused tickets are turned in at the door or made available while waiting in line. Ask for extras from people in line with tickets. Often, people have tickets they are not using. (Some last minute change of plans free up seats for Non-ticket Walk-Ins.)
- Fifteen Minutes Before Showtime: Unused tickets expire, allowing Non-Ticket Walk-Ins to be admitted.
- Some performers’ families may choose not to use their tickets. These tickets will be added to the next ticket issue.
- Standby Tickets and Waiting List: We no longer issue standby tickets and do not keep a waiting list. But, we are conservative in our estimates of potential “no shows” and have never turned anyone away.
So, for those who try, there is a way to get in. Good Luck!
