Christmas & Holiday Events

The holidays are a fun time of year on Catalina Island. In Avalon, the annual Christmas Tree Lighting, visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus and Avalon’s Shop Catalina night kick off the month-long celebration. As carolers navigate around downtown, shoppers enjoy discounts, offers and treats at local shops. Children can also drop off their Letters to Santa through December 16 at the Atwater Arcade.

Give the gift of Catalina Island with our island Gift Certificates or share the love with our Love Catalina merchandise.

At the end of the month, we usher in the new year in style at the annual New Year’s Eve Celebration in the iconic Casino Ballroom.
