36th Annual CHRISTMAS IN THE ADOBES – 2019
December 13 and 14, 2019
Hello from all of us here at Cooper-Molera! The Cooper-Molera Adobe has been open for one year as of September and now we’re getting prepared to deck the halls for Christmas in the Adobes – a beloved Monterey tradition.
Stroll the streets of Historic Downtown Monterey and visit 19th-Century Mexican Era adobes decorated for the holidays. Enjoy fandango dance lessons at Custom House, treats at Fisherman’s Wharf or bagpipes and shortbread cookies at Robert Louis Stevenson House, to name a few. Many other adobes offer entertainments, refreshments, games, history and loads of fun. It’s a holiday event for the entire family!
Twenty-three historic sites throughout the downtown area are within walking distance. Volunteers at several sites offer information about the history of their building. Some adobes offer interactive fun. We recommend you dress for weather and bring a flashlight!
Each year many event goers stay the weekend at a downtown hotel and attend both nights by purchasing a two-night pass so they can see every venue.
