Celebrate the Season with Old Pasadena

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... 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, diverse dining options, and the first 2 hours of parking for just $1 in our three Park & Walk Garages.

The Rose Parade returns at 8:00am on Monday, January 2, 2023, 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, call the Visitor Hotline from December 28, through January 2, at (877) 793-9911 (outside of the US, +1 626-795-9311) or visit the Tournament of Roses Guide offering information about all of the related events including the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl.
