Opening Night 2019

Our 40th year kicks off at 5:00pm on November 29 with the return of the Christmas in the Park Parade presented by Google. Join the fun as our "parade of neighbors" circles Christmas in the Park showcasing how special and creative our city can be. Then at 6:00pm our official opening night, also presented by Google, starts with us honoring a few special individuals that have made Christmas in the Park so special over the past 40 years. The kids from Dancyn Studio and Cirque Dreams Holidaze perform just before the official arrival of Santa Claus himself. Join us as Santa, our special guests and Mayor Sam Liccardo perform the first tree lighting presented by San Jose Clean Energy as our brand new 50 foot pixel lighted tree takes center stage for all to enjoy. The evening concludes with an amazing set of your holiday favorites performed on our excite Credit Union Community Stage by the Mary Ellen Duo.
