Holiday Plaza

Now extended through January 9, 2023

Lights, sights, & family fun in Mission Plaza!

Presented by the San Luis Obispo Collection

Mission Plaza is the centerpiece of downtown San Luis Obispo — it all happens here! Enjoy show-stopping photo opportunities and light tunnels, a 20-foot Holiday Tree (sponsored by Dignity Health), and even a brand-new Musical Light Show! Bring the kiddos to meet Santa at Santa's House and ride the Classic Carousel.

Musical Light Show

Every night (show lasts about 10 minutes)

5:30, 6:30, 7:30, 8:30, and 9:30 PM
