Unfortunately, if you do not see the date listed on our Eventbrite page, that date is sold out. Once tickets are sold out online, we will not be selling tickets at the door. Please select another night to visit – we recommend visiting on a weeknight to skip the crowds!

Due to the popularity of this event, there are no refunds or exchanges for purchased tickets. Event tickets are only valid for 1 entry for the date on the ticket. The event is open rain or shine.

Overnight Special Packages:
We understand your plans may change. Due to high demand during the holiday season, if you need to cancel your visit, please do so more than 14 days in advance of your stay (prior to our 3pm check-in time), otherwise, you will be charged the full payment for your stay.

Yes, we are open rain or shine! There are several covered areas to enjoy, including our 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 and the lights glisten even more.

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.


The Cambria Christmas Market is open November 29 to December 31, 2024 (closed Dec. 2-3, 9-10 & 24-25). Gates open at 5pm and close at 8:30pm. No entry is permitted after 8:30pm and the lights turn off at 9pm.

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.
