The Season of Wonder & Light
Arcata Main Street, local businesses, and members of our community come together every year for this celebration, in the heart of historic Arcata. This year, more than ever, we encourage everyone to come together in downtown Arcata to enjoy holiday sights, sounds, community and good cheer throughout the month.
The Plaza, the Historic Jacoby's Storehouse, and the Downtown are wreathed in lights and garlands. Shop, wine and dine with extended holiday hours, and we extend a warm welcome to join us for a Season of Wonder & Light.
