Union Street Fantasy of Lights

  • Union Street San Francisco, CA United States (map)

On December 1, Union Street kicks off its annual Fantasy of Lights Holiday celebration, where young and old alike can enjoy festivities to begin the holiday season. Thousands of holiday lights set off the Victorians, transforming Union Street into a magical backdrop for Santa and a team of elves to celebrate along with jugglers, pony rides, face painters, balloon artists, costumed characters, and singers.

See Union Street, holiday style, and hop on the Union Street Holiday Horse Drawn Carriage Ride from 3-5:30 PM, fun for the whole family!

Come decorate a holiday ornament from 3:00-5:30 PM in front of the Cudworth Mansion, 2040 Union Street!

Santa will arrive at the Cudworth Mansion, 2040 Union Street, at 5:30 PM where he will be available for pictures until 7:00 PM.

Donate toys for needy children through the SF Firefighters Toy Program. Collection barrels will be available on Union Street at the event and throughout the holiday season.

This is truly a holiday tradition that should not be missed.
