Miracle on Main Street


Miracle on Main Street returns during the month of December! With two iconic holiday tress, roaming carolers and the big guy himself Santa! ... the holidays are in full force on Main Street. Come enjoy the festive tidings all season long with the whole family.


World famous Shopping Cart Tree (2415 Main Street)

The holidays are all about tradition, which is why the 40-foot tall Shopping Cart Tree inside the Frank Gehry designed Edgemar building, will be lit up for the 26th year in a row. 84 shopping carts will be staged in the shape of a Christmas tree and lit up with 1,500 lightbulbs, held together with 4,000 zip ties.

California Heritage Museum Tree (2612 Main Street)

The beloved 13 foot tall Noble fir will stand tall over Main Street, decorated with colorful lights, taking center stage on the Heritage Museum lawn. Both trees will be on display starting December 5.


While you're out holiday shopping, or enjoying a delicious meal at one of Main Street's parklet dining locations, listen closely for the melodic sounds of your favorite holiday songs from the Jingle Jangle Rockers. For the first three weekends in December (12/5; 12/13 and 12/20) from 4pm - 6pm, the local A Cappella group will roam up and down Main Street, bringing festive tidings of your favorite holiday jingles.


The yuletide songs sung by the carolers caught the attention of the big man himself, Santa Claus! After taking a break from toy-making, Santa hopped in his sleigh and travelled all the way from the North Pole to say hello to all the good little boys and girls this holiday season. This year Santa will be socially distant like the rest of us, but you will be able to wave hello and see his red, speckled cheeks with the help from some local heroes: the Santa Monica Fire Department! Hang around on (12/5; 12/13 and 12/20) and catch Santa who travelled all the way from the North Pole, riding along Main Street.
