Holidays in the San Juans blend a small-town sensibility harkening back to a simpler time, with the creative energy born of a community rich with talent. Leave the malls and crowds behind and experience the holidays ‘island style.’ Take part in our village lightings, sing along to carols, and sip hot cocoa. Shop for island arts, crafts and foods at holiday bazaars, art galleries, boutiques and bookstores. Watch the colorful Christmas ships and excited children as Santa steps off the last boat. Attend a holiday concert. Come and enjoy our unique island holidays, rich in tradition! You’ll find holiday lodging and dining specials below, and holiday events and festivals on our Events page.
