• Festival of Lights and Jingle Mingle Holiday Market at the Fairpark!

    Santa Maria - On December 4-6, 2020, The Santa Maria Fairpark and the Santa Maria Fairpark Foundation will be hosting its inaugural Festival of Lights Holiday Event and second annual Jingle Mingle Holiday Market, along with Food trucks – fair themed of course - a live Mr. and Mrs. Claus and thousands of lights.

    The Festival of Lights will be a drive-thru event along the paths and roadways of the fairgrounds. We will be working with local businesses and organizations such to turn the Fairgrounds into a “winter wonderland”. Each ticket holder will receive an activity book full of different activities along with sponsor ads and the food menus for the fair food trucks that will be located in the parking lot at the end of the Festival of Lights drive. The Festival of Lights will be each night Friday December 4th-6th, from 5pm to 9pm.

    The Jingle Mingle Holiday Market is an amazing craft fair showcasing local artists and crafters. While pairing this year with the Santa Maria Fairpark Festival of Lights Event, we are sure to bring in hundreds of shoppers. This is the perfect opportunity to shop local and discover unique gifts for holiday gift giving and a great way to support the artisans in our community. The hours will be Friday, December 4th from 3pm-8pm and Saturday, December 5th from 9am-2pm.

    We are excited to light up the Fairgrounds together and create an unforgettable experience for the Santa Maria Valley Community to kick off the Holiday Season right, with some bright lights, fair food, Santa Claus, shopping, and friends!
