Lights at Cambria Pines

Although the display will be a smaller footprint than normal, overnight guests will still be able to celebrate the magic of the holidays in a more intimate setting, enjoying more than two million lights, while still socially distancing.

The display area will have a one-way path, a reduced number of guests, and there will be increased sanitization procedures for all shared areas. Masks will be required for all employees and guests while in the light display area. In addition, the train ride, vendor booths, and other activities will not be available this year for guest safety, due to COVID-19. But don’t fret! Everything from the tunnel of lights, down to Santa’s workshop, and back up the new path will be illuminated with beloved displays from past Cambria Christmas Markets. There will also be food and beverage booths with everyone’s favorite authentic German treats!


We wanted to give as many people the opportunity to get in the Christmas spirit as possible while still maintaining our high standards of safety and social distancing. We have created two options for you and your loved ones to choose from in order to enjoy the Lights at Cambria Pines. Keep reading to learn more about how you can join in the fun!


The Lights at Cambria Pines will be accessible for overnight guests of a Moonstone Hotel Property, including the Cambria Pines Lodge, J. Patrick House, and Sea Otter Inn. For more information about booking an overnight package, visit our Lodging page. We recommend booking early, as we anticipate selling out.

Cambria Nursery and Florist

While the Cambria Nursery and Florist will not be part of the light display this year, they will be open from 9am-5pm each day, with a festive set up including a snow machine, festive beverages to sip on, and some of the favorite past Cambria Christmas Market cutout displays. Enjoy this winter wonderland while shopping around the largest Christmas store in SLO County which includes live and freshly-cut Christmas trees, traditional holiday decorations and handmade, German imported gifts in the largest Christmas store on the Central Coast.

Food & Beverage

As mentioned above, guests can reserve a seat in our restaurant and outdoor dining options to enjoy delicious food before they enter the Lights at Cambria Pines. We will also have our traditional German food booths on site for people to enjoy while they are exploring our light displays. Due to COVID-19 regulations, we are unable to provide outside food and beverage vendor booths.

Since our dining is limited and we want as many people to enjoy the lights as possible, we encourage overnight guests to visit some of the amazing restaurants in town for dinner.
