Stearns Wharf Holiday Tree Lighting

December 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm


On December 10th, join us on Stearns Wharf to kick off the holiday season!

At 5:00 PM, before the start of the Parade of Lights boat parade, they will switch on the lights of a beautiful 25-foot Nobel Fir on Stearns Wharf to officially open the holiday season for the waterfront.

The Dos Pueblos Jazz Choir starts at 5:00, the 37th Annual Parade of Lights starts at 5:30 with some 30 boats motoring and sailing the Santa Barbara coastline, and the Fireworks start after the Boat Parade at ~7:00 PM.

Judging for the parade takes place from the West side of Stearns Wharf. Take advantage of the opportunity to start your holiday season by having dinner, a treat, or do some holiday shopping for your family and friends. Gift certificates are available at Wharf businesses.

Parking is available on Stearns Wharf (if parked prior to 3:30 p.m.) as well as at the Chase Palm Park & Garden Street parking lots. The first 90-minutes of parking on the wharf is free!
