Every year, Murphys celebrates the holiday season with the Murphys Open House from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Admission is free, the streets are closed, and we are ready to celebrate the season. Open House is a great time to peruse Murphys’ wonderful shops, tasting rooms and restaurants, see what’s new, visit with old friends, admire the community tree, and appreciate Murphys’ small town spirit.
Get a jump on your holiday shopping while shopping hours continue late into the evening specially for this event.
Happening in tandem with this great annual event is an opportunity that extends the magic of Murphys Open House throughout the holiday season, with many Calaveras wineries and tasting rooms offering special tastings as well as holiday gift specials.
Not only will you receive discounts only available during the event, this event is also a great opportunity to sip a glass of wine in a cozy tasting room while making a dent in your holiday gift list. Come shop, taste and catch up with old and new friends while Murphys is at its most festive and charming.
Main Street closes to allow Santa to arrive with the Parade and light the Christmas Tree on his way to the Native Sons Hall for photos with the kids. Businesses are open, treats will be proffered, carolers will be singing and the fire pits will be blazing so plan to join us this year to catch up with your friendly locals and get the holiday season started.
