Santa Meet and Greet 

Santa Claus is back and ready to receive your wish lists! Visit Old St. Nick in Center Court at Paseo Nuevo Shopping Center, and your kiddos will delight in receiving a gift from Santa and a festive photo op.



To ring in the holidays, Santa Barbara Zoo debuts its brand-new walk-through light show, ZooLights. Here, guests will experience a glowing display of handcrafted, silk-adorned animal- and nature-themed lanterns with interactive zones.


Miracle At Pearl Social

Pearl Social has been transformed into a Winter Wonderland, and now is your chance to enjoy holiday cheer inside the 

festive and incredibly decorated cocktail bar. Relish in over-the-top holiday décor, displays and a cocktail menu like you’ve never sipped before. With yuletide wishes aplenty, this scene is something everyone in Santa Barbara has to see to believe.


A Christmas Carol 

This Christmas, gather your family to hear Charles Dickens’ words come to life with just five total actors and live original music by Santa Barbara’s Doug Clegg as well as live foley sound effects. Recurring daily at 8 p.m. until December 18th.


Trolley of Lights
