“Light Up Main Street,” Santa and his reindeer Return to Old Town Newhall on November 20, 2021.

Newhall, Calif. – The holiday season is just around the corner, and the City of Santa Clarita is excited to welcome the community back to the official holiday kick-off, Light Up Main Street! Join your family, friends and neighbors for an evening of entertainment and holiday cheer in Old Town Newhall on Saturday, November 20, 2021, beginning at 6:00 p.m. There is no better way to ring in the season than enjoying real snow, crafts, festive performances, shopping, snacking, reindeer and pictures with Santa.

           After a virtual event last year, residents can once again enjoy this festive event centering around the momentous lighting of our 25-foot-tall Christmas tree and thousands of lights. The official tree lighting will take place promptly at 6:30 p.m. in front of the Old Town Newhall Library, so be sure to arrive early!

Following the lighting, attendees can dance to the sounds of “Electric Vinyl” performing on the Main Stage until 9:00 p.m. Six different performances will also be held throughout the night by various groups on the Community Stage near 6th Street and Main Street outside of the Canyon Theatre Guild (24242 Main Street).

           Attendees will have the opportunity to play in 20 tons of real snow on Main Street, take photos with Santa Claus, write Christmas letters with the Santa Clarita Public Library, make crafts with DFY in SCV and much more. Be sure to visit local craft vendors who will be selling one-of-a-kind gifts for the holiday season, from handcrafted jewelry and candles to beautifully designed purses and watercolor paintings. In addition to local restaurants along Main Street, 10 food trucks offering a range of savory and sweet options will be on site.

Lyons Avenue will be closed between Railroad Avenue and Newhall Avenue, and Main Street will be closed between Lyons Avenue and the roundabout.
