Christmas Tree Lane Walk-only Nights are classified by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) as an Outdoor Mega Event. An Outdoor Mega Event is where more than 10,000 people are in attendance. Christmas Tree Lane Walk-only Nights typically have 25,000 to 35,000 people attending each night. For Outdoor Mega Events, CDPH highly recommends that attendees provide proof they are fully vaccinated, or have received a negative COVID-19 test. CDPH also recommends attendees follow CDPH guidance for face coverings. CDPH also specifies for Outdoor Mega Events that venues should make masks available to attendees upon request. Lastly, CDPH specifies information about these recommendations be communicated to attendees prior to attending the event.
The Christmas Tree Lane event is produced by the Fig Garden Homeowner Association (FGHOA). Christmas Tree Lane has 23 cross streets and 40 points of entry. During the walk-only nights, every cross street is used to access The Lane. The FGHOA does not have the resources to verify that attendees have been vaccinated or have a negative test result.
Since we cannot comply with the recommendations of the CDPH for an Outdoor Mega Event, we deeply regret that we cannot have Christmas Tree Lane Walk-only Nights this year.
Christmas Tree Lane will be open this year to vehicle traffic. We will open on December 1st and our final night will be Christmas Day.
