Plan your visit to the Cambria Christmas Market

Jul 28, 2023 | Christmas, Events | 0 comments

While the summer sun shines brightly, it’s never too early to start thinking about the magic of the holiday season! Cambria Christmas Market tickets and overnight stays are on sale and weekend dates are already going fast! With limited availability, act now to ensure your spot at this cherished holiday event, tickets and overnight stays are expected to sell out before the event begins.

“We are so excited for this year’s Market and our team is working hard to make this another successful year,” said Mike Arnold, Event Manager for the Cambria Christmas Market. “We were amazed at how fast tickets and overnight packages went in 2022 and we are expecting to sell out even earlier this year.” 

This joyous holiday experience is perfect for all ages – walk through an immersive path packed with more than two million lights, take a train ride, snap a picture with Santa, enjoy live music and a local beer in the Biergarten, taste international cuisine and drink (including gluhwein) and shop for handmade gifts and imported German goods (like handmade nutcrackers) at the authentic German Christmas market booths.

The Market starts on Friday, November 24th and runs through Friday, December 23rd, 5-9 p.m. (closed Mondays and Tuesdays through Dec. 12th). Admission ranges from $15-$35 per person ages 6+ depending on the evening; children 5 & under are free. Tickets are available online in advance and tend to sell out quickly. A limited number of VIP parking passes are also available for $35 at the Cambria Nursery, and free shuttles will be provided throughout town. 


The neighboring Cambria Nursery and Florist will also participate in the festivities, with thousands of lights, a Christmas Museum and plenty of shopping opportunities, including imported German Christmas collectibles and ornaments. 

Guests will have a special opportunity to meet Christopher Radko, the designer of exquisite hand-crafted HeARTfully Yours™ ornaments, at the Nursery on December 15-17. After a 15-year hiatus, the world-renowned artist is making his grand return at the Cambria Christmas Market, making it his only current scheduled appearance on the West Coast. Radko’s glass-blown ornaments have adorned in homes for decades and each piece is hand-crafted in limited-edition quantities by nine European families, personally selected by Radko.

If you aren’t able to attend during Radko’s visit, his line HeARTfully Yours™ is available year-round in the Nursery’s Yellow Gift Shop. More details are to be announced on the Nursery’s Facebook and Instagram pages. 


Don’t wait to book an overnight stay, partner hotels typically sell out for the season before opening day and weekend stays are already going fast!  All hotel packages include event admission for each person on the reservation, a hotel room and breakfast:

  • Cambria Pines Lodge: Stay just steps away from the action, some hotel room decks even overlook the lights! Large suites for the whole family and pet-friendly rooms are available. 
  • Sea Otter Inn: The charming Inn across from Moonstone Beach offers a quick, complimentary shuttle ride to the light display. This hotel features newly renovated rooms, breakfast basket delivery, fire pits overlooking the ocean and more.
  • The J. Patrick House & Inn: Across the street from the light display, this is the perfect location for couples or solo travelers (not ideal for children) and includes fresh cookies daily and a breakfast basket delivery.
