Balboa Park December Nights

December Nights logo

The magic of Balboa Park December Nights was evident through the reimagined event in 2020. We would like to thank our sponsors, our vendors, the International Cottages, our volunteers, Santa and most importantly, the loyal attendees that helped make Taste of December Nights 2020 a successful event! Over 4,000 cars with over 10,000 family members and friends came through the event and enjoyed an array of foods, sweets, and drinks from around the world.

While 2020 did not allow our beloved gift to the region to occur as we know it, inspired minds created a drive-through event that complied with County and State safety protocols – even Santa was there to wave to folks and provide holiday cheer from a safe distance!

What's in store for 2021? Due to the potential uncertainty of public health conditions at the time of December Nights, and out of an abundance of caution, the City has made the decision to expand upon the 2020 successful drive-through experience for this year's event. The City's Special Events & Filming Department is currently working on concepts and more details will be shared in the coming months.
