Christmas in Santa Barbara

Release Date: July 13,2018

We may not know the future of the vacant Macy's building in downtown Santa Barbara, but this Christmas, it is going to come alive with some old school tradition.

Santa Barbara will host a European-style Christmas Night Market at 701 State St., at the former Macy's building in Paseo Nuevo Shops & Restaurants.

Amy Cooper, owner of Plum Goods on State Street, told Noozhawk that the Santa Barbara Night Market will begin on Black Friday, Nov. 23, and run every evening through Jan. 6. 

"Every Christmas, all over Europe, craftsmen, retailers, wineries and artisans exhibit their goods in a traditional night market often known for its lively and unique shopping experience," the new Website states.

"This year, Santa Barbara Night Market LLC, is proud to bring this tradition to State Street with holiday themed décor, live music, carolers, food, beverages and all the best products the Central Coast has to offer."
