Peruse, Purchase, Play - Berkeley for the Holidays!
Once upon a time, holiday shopping was actually enjoyable; a time to celebrate the season, behold twinkling lights, and take a well-deserved "cheer" break. In other words, something far from the frenzied antics that start in the pre-dawn hours after Thanksgiving!
There's at least one place where that throwback tradition of great holiday vibe lives on. Berkeley is bright with high-quality holiday experiences to celebrate the season. Joy, Berkeley-style includes finding a parking space, local and organic snacks (and craft beer and natural wine) on nearly every block, and an abundance of holiday spirit. Friendly shopping streets and local, independent retail in neighborhoods all around.
More spirit. Less stress. Revive, revel, and yes, relax! Create your new/throwback holiday tradition in Berkeley.
The Berkeley Chamber's 4th Annual Holiday Gift Fair is Thursday December 8, 2022, from 4-7pm at Hotel Shattuck Plaza.
Check out 30+ local vendors and pick up gifts for everyone on your list! Bring your mask and proof of vaccination. This event is FREE to the public!
Another stellar Berkeley holiday tradition is the 39th annual Telegraph Avenue Holiday Street Fair.
Holiday shoppers will be treated to an abundance of good cheer, great music, fine food, with unique and unusual handcrafts by some of Northern California's finest artists.
