Lots is happening in and around our quaint corner of Silicon Valley, and keeping up is half the battle. To make your holidays a little less stressful and a little more jolly, I have organized a list of events and activities going on in Los Gatos this holiday season. Below you will two lists – one with unique holiday events by date and a separate list of ongoing events. These lists do not include religious services, so please check your preferred place of prayer for those schedules.
Here’s the rundown on carriage rides, the Fantasy of Lights, the tree lighting ceremony, the Los Gatos holiday parade, and more:

Summers in Los Gatos include three different musical concert series, all free to the public: Jazz on the Plazz (most Wednesdays, 5:30-7:30pm, June – August, Los Gatos Town Plaza), Music in the Park (some Sunday afternoons, varying times, June-August, Civic Center Lawn), and Vasona Vibrations (every Saturday, 5-7pm, June/July, Vasona Lake County Park).
The Los Gatos Observer has made one conveniently integrated list of all three of these, so you’ll want to print out this page and bookmark it too in case there are any changes. The fun begins June 2nd. With 31 free concerts in all, and a variety of musical styles presented, there truly is “something for everyone”.
