Calistoga’s Famous Lighted Tractor Parade

Agricultural HeritageCalistoga’s lighted tractor parade is celebrating its 19th anniversary this year. Join us for this quaint small town tradition where we pay homage to the city’s agricultural heritage.

Tractors of all shapes and sizes will be dressed up with shining lights as they parade down the main street of Lincoln Avenue. It’s great fun for everyone and Santa even makes a special visit! (Pictures courtesy of the Tractor ParadeCalistoga Visitor Center.)


Our family loves this Calistoga tradition and we usually start off with a nice Hot Toddy to warm us up before the parade. Here is our favorite recipe.
