Holiday Events are Comin’ to Town!

By Mayor Marsha McLean


There’s a chill in the air, and Santa Clarita is embracing it with the warmth of holiday cheer. The holidays bring friends and the community together to share experiences in the most joyous of seasons. I can think of no better way to spend time with loved ones than walking down Main Street in Old Town Newhall marveling at the gorgeous displays of sparkling lights that made their grand debut at the City’s annual Light Up Main Street event last week. But never fear, the City has even more upcoming events just in time for the holiday!

            The Santa Clarita Public Library has what you need for your next adventure, and is the perfect place to get into the holiday spirit with sweets and storytime. Whether it’s building gingerbread houses, decorating holiday-themed cookies or finding a cozy spot on the rug for Hanukkah storytime, there is something for everyone! Visit to view a fully interactive calendar of events happening at our three library branches in Canyon Country, Valencia and Old Town Newhall.

Our City facilities will be opening their doors to host multiple events as well. The Canyon Country Community Center invites you to holiday-themed events including, Hot Cocoa and a Movie on Friday, December 6 and Milk and Cookies with Santa on December 10 and 12, with a sensory-friendly version the following week on Monday, December 16.

Don’t forget to stop by The MAIN in Old Town Newhall, where you can enjoy acts including Comedy Mashup – which makes its return for another great evening of comedy and improv on Friday, December 6. This group of comedians congregate right here in Santa Clarita, providing a night filled with stand up and improv comedy. Also at The MAIN from December 13 through the 22 is A Cowboy Christmas Carol. This show is a rip-roarin’ twist on the classic Dickens tale filled with music, dancing and lots of holiday spirit that you don’t want to miss. For a list of upcoming shows and events, visit

Next on our list of festive events is the City’s Annual Holiday Light Tour, which allows residents to view some of our City’s best displays of holiday décor from December 20 through 22. For only $3 or FREE with a canned food donation, residents can board the City’s classic wood trolley for nearly an hour of nonstop fun with friends and family. Tickets can be purchased upon boarding the trolley at the McBean Regional Transit Center with rides beginning at 6:00 p.m. For additional information, including suggested donations, visit

All of these events are wonderful ways to connect with your family, friends and community. This time of year reminds us to remark on the blessings we have. As your Mayor, I take pride in the numerous projects and programs that make Santa Clarita such a wonderful place to live. As we head into the New Year, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday season filled with peace, love and joy. Happy Holidays Santa Clarita, and I look forward to seeing you in 2020!
