Holiday Open House

Kick off the Holiday Season with Lincoln Center. Lincoln Center’s Holiday Open House is a one-day-only event for the entire family! Enjoy festive holiday décor, store promotions and sales, live musical entertainment and other wonderful seasonal surprises. Our beautiful tree will be up and decorated and Santa and his elves are making their first appearance of the season in the North Pole at 265 Lincoln Center (same location as last year!).

Black Friday

Yes, yes, yes! The biggest shopping day of the year is almost here! Come to Lincoln Center for a day of great shopping, delicious dining and live music on Friday, November 25. Children can see Santa and ride on the train from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. You can get a head start on all your holiday needs, from baking necessities to checking off your shopping lists — Lincoln Center is your one-stop-shop for the busiest Friday of the year.

Small Business Saturday

This November 25 is a day we love here at Lincoln Center. Over 75 of our Center’s shops, restaurants and services are locally owned. Join us in supporting them all at the 8th Annual Small Business Saturday. Santa will be in his house at the new North Pole from 12:00 to 5:00 pm, there will be free train rides for the kids from 12:00 to 5:00 pm on the Brickwalk and the free horse & carriage rides from 12:00 to 3:00 pm.

Fill the Truck Food Drive

Come out to Lincoln Center on Saturday, December 9 for our “Fill-the-Truck” Food Drive in front of Trader Joe’s and Podesto’s Market. The baseball teams from St. Mary’s and Lincoln High Schools are helping out by collecting food from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Everything will be donated to the Emergency Food Bank of San Joaquin. We’ll take any non-perishable food items. Hope to see you there!
