5th Annual Spirit of Danville Holiday Shopping & Dining Extravaganza
Saturday, November 24th • 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m.
Get into the Spirit! With the holiday season fast approaching, Danville merchants have come together for a day of holiday cheer while benefiting local charities!
You’ll find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Be sure to eat out as restaurants will have wonderful menu offerings to satisfy the distinguished palette. Rain or shine, to keep your spirit warm, some merchants will offer hot cider, cookies, holiday ornaments and gifts throughout the day. Free trolley rides will shuttle shoppers in downtown Danville, the Livery and the Rose Garden Shops from 2pm-8pm.
Santa will be visiting Downtown between the hours of 2 and 6 pm at The Museum of the San Ramon Valley. Bring down the children to share their wish list with Santa. Be sure to visit the Museum’s Christmas Memories exhibit. Free admission daily.
Please share in the spirit by supporting the participating local nonprofit organizations whose selfless work benefits our town and surrounding communities.
Representatives from Blue Star Moms, Hospice of the East Bay, San Ramon Valley Education Foundation, Lazarex Cancer Foundation and Discover Danville Association will host booths with a commemorative ornament available with a charitable donation.
