Each November after Thanksgiving, the Annual Cordova Community Christmas Tree Lighting is held at Village Green Park. This family-friendly event delights our community year after year, and features a live nativity scene, stage performances including carolers, food trucks, community organizations and vendor booths, twinkling lights, and fireworks!
Just up the 50 freeway you can cut down your own Christmas tree in Apple Hill, home to a group of orchards, ranches, and farms that offer tantalizing treats, boutique vendors, and local produce! Grab a thermos of cocoa and spend your day on the mountain making family memories. Don't forget to bring tie-down straps and a quilt to transport your tree on the roof of your car!
Each year, the Sacramento Valley Live Steamers Railroad Museum offers December weekend rides on their Santa Train at Hagan Community Park. Bring the whole family for a jolly good time, including a train ride with St. Nick himself, and get a family photo to commemorate the free event.
