2021 Country Christmas – Joy in Julian!

2021 will bring decorations to Julian in our traditional way.  Our town loves to provide a Country Christmas atmosphere for our visitors.  

Christmas Tree Lighting Festivities Scheduled for November 27, 2021

More details to follow

We encourage you to come to Julian to enjoy our sweet, lovely town and enjoy the decorations and the offerings of our local shops and organizations. 

Christmas comes to Julian every year in an old-fashioned way that will make you picture sleigh rides, chestnuts roasting on open fires, and Jack Frost painting the whole town white.

That may be a bit of a dream. But due to its Cuyamaca Mountains location, the holiday time in Julian gets closer to that dream than most spots in Southern California. You’ll feel a nip in the air, sniff wood fires, and maybe catch a glimpse of snow capped mountains surrounding town.

The holiday season in Julian  also offers an opportunity to shop at small boutiques, without crowds or lines, for one-of-a-kind gifts.
