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. 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. Check back here in Fall 2023 for what's ahead for the holidays.
