Join the City of Elk Grove for our 4th annual Illumination Holiday Festival

This holiday event has everything you're looking for to get into the spirit including shopping for special gifts in the Vendor Village, brought to you by River City Marketplace, taking a glide on a special ice rink, letting the kiddos jump in wintery bounce houses, enjoying some holiday delicacies, celebrating traditions from around the globe, stepping into a giant snowglobe for a holiday photo, playing some holiday carnival games and even connecting with Mr. Claus himself! 

In addition to the festival, make sure to grab a great spot along the beloved Holiday Parade of Lights, produced by The Elk Grove Lions Club and Presented by Sutter Health, as it makes its way around District56 beginning at 6pm.


We may even see some snow during the tree lighting following the parade! (Tree lighting is approximately 7pm)

The Illumination Festival is free to attend and open to everyone. 

Free Shuttle!
We've partnered with SacRT and Dignity Health to provide free shuttle service from the Dignity Health Medical Plaza, located at 8220 Wymark Drive.  This overflow parking lot will allow guests to jump on the SacRT shuttle and head over to the festival!

Shuttle Schedule:  Shuttles will run every 15 minutes from 2:30pm - 8:45pm.  Please note there will be no service from 5:45pm - 7:30pm due to the Parade closing those roads
