Yucca Valley is more than dirt bike trails and natural beauty. We offer many different activities year round to keep our residents happy. Wintertime is even better as families come together and neighbors unite over warm coco and snow (Yes! Snow in California).
The Holiday Craft Faire at the Yucca Valley Community center just can’t be missed. This is the Christmas shoppers dream! Over 50 vendors sell a variety of handmade items for every age group and gender. There is food and drinks available and the atmosphere is amazing. On display is everything from cold process soap, hand sewn clothing items, crochet and knitted accessories, jewelry and more. This annual event is loved by locals and tourist alike and my family has personally participated in this event. Since the vendors change every year it’s something we will continue to come back to year after year. Hopefully soon I’ll be a vendor and not just a shopper!
December 4th is a very special day, besides the craft faire from 9am-2pm; you have the Town Tree Lighting and Santa Visits right over at town hall at 6pm. This is a great was to enjoy quality time with your family and eat yummy cookies and sip hot cocoa too. All these events have free admission so only bring money if you plan on shopping. Spending time with neighbors, friends, and family brings our community closer together, which brings nothing but encouragement and optimism to our town.
The High Desert Nature Museum hosts an amazing children’s craft program December 11th at 10am to noon. Enjoy making holiday themed crafts for friends and family and walk around the mesum afterwards for a relaxing afternoon.
