Downtown San Luis Obispo has been the region’s destination for making holiday memories for more than 40 years. This year, treasured family traditions will look a little bit different as Downtown SLO will reimagine the 2020 holiday season to keep everyone safe, while still staying festive.
The Holiday season will kick off on Saturday, November 28 with Shop Small Saturday, celebrating local businesses. Santa’s House, the Classic Carousel, and the 21-foot Holiday Tree will be on display in Mission Plaza, with opportunities for family photos.
The annual Holiday Parade will be reimagined with activities that families and friends can do on their own time and in a safe, physically-distanced manner, including an expanded Holiday Stroll and Light Up Downtown, a Holiday Decorating Showcase featuring windows of shops, parklets in front of restaurants, and other exciting lighting activations to be announced.
