Cinequest Film Festival is a 13-day event in early Spring dedicated to showcasing new and up-and-coming film makers. More than 200 films from artists and film professionals from more than 40 countries attend. The films at the Festival are thought-provoking and experimental, seeking to connect art and technology in interesting and innovative ways. Festival goers number in the 80,000 number and bring commerce and tourism to the area. In 2011, there were 188 films shown, 80 world premiers, more than 600 artists and 44 countries in attendance.

Christmas In the Park

The South Bay Area’s holiday celebration starts right after Thanksgiving Day. After celebrating with family and friends, Downtown San Jose opens Christmas in the Park with a Tree Lighting Ceremony. This year November 23rd is the start of San Jose's holiday tradition. The ceremony begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Plaza De Cesar Chavez Park.

Winter Wonderland and Downtown Ice are right by the tree lighting area. You can go for fun rides and indulge in popcorn and candied apples.

If you prefer shopping and dining, Downtown San Jose has a wealth of shops, restaurants, and local attractions. If you are in Santa Clara between November 25th to January 1st, this is an experience you may not want to miss.
