Main Street Holiday Parties

Sat Dec 7, 2019
4:00pm to 8:00pm
All ages

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the "Miracle on Main Street", the local seasonal celebration featuring a tree lighting, carolers, Santa Claus and a festive tree made of shopping carts.

The businesses of Santa Monica's Main Street host an evening of holiday fun for the whole family. The festivities start at the lawn of the California Heritage Museum.

Santa Claus greets kids and poses for photos (bring your own camera). The tree is lit, then Santa leads a candlelit procession to the Shopping Cart tree at Edgemar Courtyard. In the evening, participating merchants offer refreshments, sidewalk sales, and entertainment. Vote in the Holiday Decorations contest for a chance at great prizes.
