Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, following health and safety guidance from the state and county departments of health and California State Parks, we have cancelled our annual tree lighting and holiday bazaar. This Crystal Cove holiday tradition has been bringing community and families together for holiday cheer for 23 years. We are sad not to be able to host this wonderful event again this year, but the health and safety of our members, park-goers, staff and volunteers remains our top priority. We look forward to gathering with our neighbors again next year to welcome Santa back to the beach. Through this crisis, we’ve all seen how important protected natural spaces like Crystal Cove are to communities, and we hope our neighbors and supporters will find their way here to explore the quiet of the park in winter until we can gather together again.
