The 2020 Cambria Christmas Market is canceled. Organizers say the event is being postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns.

Instead of the normal market lights, a new light display called the Lights at Cambria Pines will be offered for guests staying at a Moonstone Hotel Property.

Organizers say this light display will still incorporate many of the beloved displays from the Cambria Christmas Market, but will be drastically different to ensure safety, including limiting the number of people with access to the lights.

The Lights at Cambria display will only be available for guests staying at the Cambria Pines Lodge, J. Patrick House and Sea Otter Inn. Guests will need to be booked on the Christmas package beginning on Nov. 27 through Jan. 2. Guests must book the package directly through the hotels.

"We are excited to be able to offer another impressive light display this year and still plan to put up all of our lights," said Mike Arnold, Public Event Manager for the Lights at Cambria Pines. "Everything from the tunnel of lights, down to Santa's workshop, and back up the new path will be illuminated with amazing displays."

The display area will have a one-way path, a reduced number of guests, and there will be increased sanitization procedures for all shared areas. Masks will be required for all employees and guests while in the light display area.

The Lights at Cambria Pines will be open Friday, Nov. 27- Saturday, Jan. 2, closed on Dec. 24 and Dec. 25. The overnight includes access to the lights for each person on the reservation and breakfast in the morning.

The Cambria Christmas Market plans to return in its usual form in 2021. For more information, please visit this website.
