2022 Christmas & Holiday Happenings

Celebrate the winter season with Christmas parades, holiday light tours, a visit with Santa, the Nutcracker ballet and Christmas caroling. Attend a community tree lighting — or join in an extra special covered bridge lighting! Go shopping for holiday gifts at artisan markets, at malls or in charming shopping districts. And don't forget to make reservations for Christmas dinner or brunch at a local restaurant.

Discover Eugene's Best Holiday Traditions

For just a few days, unwrap a little old fashioned holiday cheer and immerse yourself in the twinkly lights and joyful spirit of Christmas in Eugene…

A Giving Season

This year as you lift your glass of local Pinot Noir in gratitude for health and wellbeing, let us remember our greater community impacted by the ongoing challenges of the last several years. Make that extra effort to select this year's gifts from an artisan vendor, a small business or an independently owned store. Set your holiday table with food from nearby farms, vendors and restaurants. Book regional hotel rooms for visiting friends or family—or for yourself as a much needed "staycation." And if you are traveling to the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region for shopping, stay the night! And if you are vacationing here, add on an additional experience — like a limousine winery tour or a guided fly fishing excursion or tickets to a local theater.
