Updated: Dec 7, 2023

The holiday season is in full effect and it is time to celebrate! Check out these amazing local events happening here in the Inland Empire and surrounding communities!

Step back in time for an enchanted experience and visit the historic landmark in Rancho Cucamonga! The open house will be absolutely magical with carolers, hot cocoa and coffee, s'mores, fun activities for the kids and family and of course Santa will be making an appearance! You can purchase tickets for the open house on Sunday December 10 from 2:00-4:00 or 5:00-7:00. Be sure to click the link for more information!

Come party with Santa as he gets into the spirit Hawaiian style. Join him for sledding and snow play, crafts, Kona Ice and photos with Santa on Saturday, December 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Heritage Park (5546 Beryl St)

Experience the magic of Christmas at Santa’s Wonderland now through the 24th! Take a photo with Santa, explore his toy shop, and make some wonderful holiday themed arts and crafts! Reserve your spot on their website!

Upland Craft Fair and Festival

Join the fun on December 9th 10:30 am – 5 pm for the annual Christmas on Euclid Craft Fair and Festival in Upland. Families are invited to enjoy the holiday market, craft fair, ice skating, live performances, a holiday parade and much, much more!

This is one of my favorite activities to do since I was a little girl. Watch beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes glide along the harbor in the 115th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. This year’s parade will be held Wednesday through Sunday, December 13-17. Be sure to check the site for the best viewing spots!

Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, until December 17, from 10am to 7pm. The 33rd Annual Winter Fantasy is a one-of-a-kind holiday art festival that offers a festive and unique experience in a winter wonderland with 168 local artisans, three stages of live music, complimentary art and pottery classes, puppet shows, AND free photos with Santa!

Hey Inland Empire, I’m Candice Newman! I’ve had the incredible fortune of being born and raised in this amazing community, and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. I currently live in Alta Loma with my husband, Jonathan, our son, Trevor, and our dog, Ruger! I’m a real estate agent with a passion for finding new places to explore in the Foothill Communities. When I'm not selling homes, you can find me cheering my son on at his baseball games, exercising, spending time in our local mountains, heading to the lake, cooking, or watching the Dodgers slay the Giants (I was born and raised an Angels fan, but the Dodgers have taken over the household!). I'll never have enough Mexican food and Italian food in my life. I’m looking forward to connecting with you soon! See you around town! | (909)367-3280 DRE: 01924842
