Celebrate the Holidays with Macy's Union Square

Macy's Union Square brings back its annual fun-filled events and celebrations for the holidays in 2019. Visit Macy's between Nov. 1, 2019 and Jan. 5, 2020 to experience the wonders of the season.

Tree Lighting

The 30th Annual Macy’s Great Tree Lighting Ceremony takes places on Nov. 29, 2019 at 6 p.m. in the heart of Union Square. The holidays kick off when the 83-foot tree is lit with more than 33,000 twinkling lights and 1,100 shining ornaments. Enjoy special musical performances, plus a visit from the one and only Santa!

Winter Walk SF

Winter Walk SF offers 5 weeks of holiday decor, mobile food and craft beverages curated by Off the Grid, family friendly activities, art, community performances and entertainment, sponsored activations, and 17,000 sq ft of open green space. This holiday pop-up pedestrian plaza, sponsored by Macy's and other local businesses, will be open through Dec. 31, 2019 on Grant Avenue between Geary and Post and Maiden Lane, across from Union Square Park.


Have Santa hear your holiday wishes and take a picture with the man himself, starting Nov. 29 until Dec. 24 - so see him before he leaves on his big journey! This magical holiday wonderland is designed to delight children of all ages.

Believe Campaign & Letter to Santa

Write or email your letter to Santa and help make wishes come true. Macy's will count all the letters received nationwide and donate $1 for each letter to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, up to $1,000,000.

Holiday Windows

Macy's has been renowned for its stunning holiday window displays since the 1870s. In fact, the department store was the first store to feature holiday windows created for the pure fun and joy of the season. The brand's tradition continues today at the San Francisco store. Be sure to stop by this season through Tuesday, Jan. 1. as Macy's partners with the San Francisco SPCA to bring adorable - and adoptable - cats and dogs to Union Square. Find out more about this special partnership and extended activities here.
