The 7th annual RockStar Trolley of Lights Tour showcases the bright lights and festive merriment of Santa Barbara.

Hop on the trolley for a tour of our town's holiday cheer showcasing the best decorations Santa Barbara has to offer. You might even catch a glimpse of Santa!

The festivities begin on December 6 through December 30 and is guaranteed fun for all ages, a must-do for locals and visitors alike. This is a great way to celebrate the season with the whole family.

Tickets are now available, but they sell out fast! The tour is free for children ages 2 and under, $18 for kids, and $28 for adults. Meet in front of the Santa Barbara Zoo 30 minutes before your departure time to check-in. While you’re waiting, make sure to grab any food or beverages you would like at the Zoo snack stand. Don’t worry about candy canes and hot chocolate, RockStar Trolley provides those for free!

During the 90-minute trolley tour we aim to fit in all Santa Barbara’s most fantastic holiday decorations and lights! With this in mind, we won’t have time to stop for bathroom breaks, so be sure to use the restrooms at the Zoo before we depart.  You can park your cars inside the Zoo parking lot and even hang out inside the Zoo courtyard until Trolley departure time.

You won’t want to miss out on this Santa Barbara classic.​
