Theatre of Lights

Theatre of Lights, produced by Downtown Sacramento Partnership, is a free holiday lighting extravaganza at the Old Sacramento Waterfront. Sadly, this holiday tradition will be postponed to November 2021.  Join Downtown Sacramento Partnership as we reimagine the holiday traditions with safety in mind. Sacramento’s Historic Waterfront District and Downtown Sacramento remains a top regional holiday destination and will transform into a Winter Wonderland giving visitors the opportunity to create new holiday memories with the holiday tree, window displays, music, lighting, and the Waterfront Wheel.
