We are approaching the holiday season this year filled with joy and gratitude. Since the pandemic, many of us didn’t get to celebrate the holidays in close contact with our friends and families.
Fortunately, we can now celebrate the holidays similarly to pre-pandemic times for the first time in years, as most restrictions have been lifted.
The American can-do spirit has stood tall against the challenges we have endured these past few years. Every year, Sonoma County demonstrates this by gathering as a unified community.
Additionally, Sonoma County has a way of bringing everyone together and making them feel welcome.
Moreover, the holiday season is always hectic. To help with your planning for what to do this time of year and to experience the best that Northern California has to offer, we have prepared a list of some of the most exciting and fun-filled events and activities in our area.
Sonoma Holiday Events and Activities:
Winter Art Market– Over 50 artists will participate, including everything from classes to ceramics, clothing to cartoons. Enjoy a festive shopping experience, music, wine, and fun.
Merry Healdsburg Weekend – Celebrate the holidays on the Plaza with the second annual Merry Healdsburg Tree Lighting. Enjoy a winter wonderland downtown with carriage rides, live holiday music, and more.
The Festival of Christmas – A free festival filled with live music performed by the Casa Grande Concert Choir, Kenilworth Junior High Jazz Band, and Christmas carolers.
Winter Lights Rink – Skating on the Square – Winter Lights is Santa Rosa’s destination for season-long holiday fun with Skating on the Square, the annual tree lighting celebration, live performances, and holiday shopping and dining opportunities.
However, these are only a few of the many things to do in Sonoma County this holiday season. There are more activities and events to attend within your specific range of interest. You may find all of the event dates and information here.
Finally, the last few years have been hard on everyone. While the pandemic represented a communal challenge, the resilience of the Sonoma County community provided inspiration that kept everyone moving forward. We feel grateful to be a part of this community. We hope that you can be a part of it too. Amidst the holidays, we are still here and always willing to support you in any way we can; give us a call!
We conclude with this final quote from Agnes M. Pharo and wish you all happy holidays!
