Christmas in the Adobes is Monterey's signature holiday event. Held this year on December 8 & 9, 5pm-9pm, it features many beautifully decorated historic adobes for you to visit on foot. Staff and volunteers dressed in period attire greet visitors, with many venues offering music and entertainment.
