The Cambria Christmas Market

The Cambria Christmas Market is open to the public until December 31, 2022.

Gates open at 5pm and close at 8:30pm. No entry is permitted after 8:30pm and the lights turn off at 9pm.

We are committed to guest health and safety and are actively monitoring public health situations. We will continue to follow guidance from local, national and international health agencies. We have sanitation stations conveniently located throughout the entire property. We have also increased cleanings in all areas to ensure that shared spaces are cleaned regularly and thoroughly. Our one-way paths throughout the light displays prevent congestion and allow for social distancing.

We will notify all guests and update our website and social media pages if we have to adjust our event layout.

The Cambria Christmas Market is very similar to other attractions such as Six Flags, Disneyland and Universal Studios in Hollywood in that weekends are much more popular than weekdays. So, if you are planning on a weekend visit, please prepare for larger crowds and longer wait times. Additionally, as we get closer to Christmas, every day (weekends and weekdays) become much busier with larger crowds attending.

We suggest spending 2 to 3 hours at the Market. Please plan accordingly and arrive early.

The entire walking distance of The Cambria Christmas Market is approximately 1.25 miles. Various seating areas are available along the way.

Yes, we are open rain or shine! There are several covered areas to enjoy, including our Pizza Nook, Biergarten and Amphitheater. While the majority of the light displays and Market are not covered, we do sell rain ponchos and we suggest bringing an umbrella. Wet nights are actually a great time to see the event since the crowds are generally smaller.

If the Market is ever forced to close for any reason, our Facebook page will have the most up-to-date information. Follow us at facebook.com/CambriaChristmasMarket.
