Holiday Parties

Did you know that you can have your holiday party at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, overlooking the Holiday of Lights?

The Grandstand has many skybox rooms that have great views of the Holiday of Lights — perfect for parties of up to 250 guests, plus larger buildings that can be transformed into a magical event for gatherings of thousands.

We offer for your party:
• Skyboxes with view of the Holiday of Lights
• Ocean views
• Complimentary parking
• On-site event coordinator
• Tables, chairs, linens, dance floor and stage, patio heaters, audio/visual equipment and setup
• Central, easy-to-find location just off Interstate 5, 20 miles north of San Diego
• Holiday party packages available

We can arrange for your group to tour the Holiday of Lights during your party. Parties larger than 100 people can book a private Holiday Hayride any night of the week, except Mondays and Saturdays.

If you’re thinking of a Happy-hour type event, Santa’s Pub and The Elves Lounge are both available to have your company party.
