Local Cheer Starts Here

Old Pasadena celebrates the holidays with festive snowflake lighting, unique shopping, and restaurants for any special occasion with friends and family. With more than 300 shops and restaurants, nearly 200 of which are independent businesses, Old Pasadena is the perfect holiday shopping and dining destination, all in one historic and walkable downtown.  

Look for our seasonal snowflake decor... in merchant windows, under your feet, projected onto our historic buildings, and twinkling from streetlights.  Old Pasadena invites you to visit our authentic downtown this holiday season for one-stop shopping, indoor and outdoor dining options, convenient curbside pick-up, and 90-minutes FREE parking in our three Park & Walk Garages.

The Rose Parade returns at 8:00am on January 1, 2022, and will travel along Colorado Boulevard and through Old Pasadena once again.  As they do every year, our Clean Team will have the street and sidewalks sparkling clean within hours after the parade ends, allowing our shops and restaurants to receive visitors by noon.  For more information about the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl, call the live Visitor Hotline at (877) 793-9911 (outside of the US, +1 626-795-9311) or download the Visitor Hotline Reference Guide.
