Merchants light up Downtown Healdsburg on November 27 for this festive annual tradition. Shoppers can stroll from store to store picking up holiday gifts as they take in live entertainment and snack on holiday treats. There's no better way to get into the holiday spirit!
The event takes place in around the charming plaza in the heart of Healdsburg that is less than five minutes from our wine country hotel. Shopkeepers decorate their stores and present their finest goods from handmade jewelry to the famous wines in Sonoma County. Locals and visitors alike gather for this celebration that feels like an old-fashioned village party. There will be live jazz bands, choirs singing Christmas carols and street musicians on almost every corner.
Adults aren't the only ones who will have a good time. Santa will be on hand to take photos with the kids. Children will also love the arts and crafts activities and free horse carriage rides. And keep an eye out for the magician that will be performing tricks for all ages.
