Holiday on the Plaza

Get ready to jingle and mingle in style at Downtown Berkeley's annual Holiday on the Plaza!

Join us on Friday, December 8th, from 3 pm to 7 pm, for another unforgettable festive Holiday on the Plaza! Bring the whole family for a visit from Santa and celebrate the second night of Hanukkah!

Our annual Holiday event includes a charming holiday market bursting with creativity and filled to the brim with artist vendors, handcrafted treasures, and unique gifts. It's a shopping spree that Santa himself would envy! And let's talk about treats! Delectable delights from local vendors will satisfy your taste buds, but make sure you save room for the star of the show—Almare Gelato's legendary Italian hot chocolate. This cup of cocoa magic is pure holiday bliss in a mug.

If you're feeling crafty, our craft tables are your artistic playground, where you can create your very own holiday masterpieces. But that's not all, folks! The air will be filled with the sweet sounds of live music, setting the perfect backdrop for a joyful evening.

And of course, what's a holiday event without the big man in red? Santa himself will be making a grand appearance, ready to hear your wishes and pose for photos that will make your holiday album shine.

The best part? This event is an early gift to all – it's FREE for kids of all ages! That's right, young or just young at heart, everyone is welcome to join in the festive fun. So grab your mittens, slip into your coziest sweater, and get ready to celebrate the season in style. Downtown Berkeley's Holiday on the Plaza is the holiday event you don't want to miss!

Come early and shop!
