Holiday in the Park 2023

The 33rd annual Holiday in the Park event is just a few weeks away, and myBurbank has the ultimate guide to experiencing it.  Presented by the Magnolia Park Merchants Association in partnership with the City of Burbank and the Brad Korb Real Estate Group, this year’s event is on Friday, November 17 2023, from 5-9 pm

A small committee plans the event each year, led at the forefront by community event organizer Ashley Erikson, who has been growing and cultivating Holiday in the Park over the last ten years to the massive scale that it has become today. The event scales nine city blocks closed down to the public, a classic car show, a family fun zone, a Ferris wheel, an art fair, a live performance stage, and over 100 vendor booths.

The committee has faced many challenges and setbacks this year, including increased safety costs, added facility requirements, applications,  and LA County permits and fees.  The association is calling out to the community to help them raise funds for the event, which has a budget of over $98,000 to operate. Visit their Go Fund Me page here to donate. Every little bit helps, even just $5, which will help them to cover the costs this year.

The street closure will begin at 8:00 AM on November 17th, so for customers of Magnolia Park businesses during the day, be sure to park on side streets to avoid being ticketed or towed. Bathrooms can be found during the event, located on the side streets of Cordova, Lima, Ontario, and Niagara St.

Here is a block-by-block guide to the event:
