Button up for another holiday season with new events and experiences at Westfield San Francisco Centre.
Feeling festive? You’ll find flurry of holiday happenings at Westfield San Francisco Centre, starting Nov. 1, when Westfield welcomes the One Warm Coat Drive. Channel your giving spirit to help cloak those in need with extra warmth and donate gently worn and new coats through Christmas.
Adding more light to the season is Westfield’s famous upside down Christmas tree. The 50-foot, chandelier-like spruce, covered in crystals, rises the second week of November, with Westfield and San Francisco magazine presenting its annual Holiday Tree Lighting Event on Dec 1. From 6-9PM, the ticketed event ($75) will feature cocktails, spirit tastings, bites from the city’s best chefs, live entertainment and more.
When it comes to your holiday wish lists, Westfield is set to give, receive, repeat, with a sleigh-full of seasonal sales on Black Friday, Nov. 26, and the Patchwork Show Modern Makers Festival, a free community event celebrating the shop local movement, on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 27, from 10AM-4PM. Peruse artisan wares from over 50 local, independent artists and enjoy DIY craft stations, music and activities, then revisit Patchwork’s two-day holiday market, Dec. 11 and 12, also from 10AM-4PM (located on Level 4 under the Dome)."Small businesses are the heart and soul of the city and we encourage everyone to come out on Small Business Saturday to support the creative magic of local makers," says Nick Cattaneo, marketing director, Westfield San Francisco Centre.
Finally, Black Friday weekend would not be complete without a Meet & Greet from Black Santa and Mrs. C, brought to you by Baron Davis & the Black Santa Company. "With all that’s going on in this country, and particularly in the African-American community, I want to offer heroes and role models through storytelling. Black Santa is the first character, his mission is to celebrate diversity, the joy of giving and the magic of good. He’s here to bring people together and have fun," says founder & NBA All-Star, Baron Davis.
