2021 Festival of Lights

The 2021 Mission Inn Festival of Lights will return with lighting displays and décor along Main Street. The event will open as a self-guided holiday lighting and décor experience. While we encourage individuals to take in the lights of the Mission Inn Hotel and Spa and the downtown light displays produced by the City, we encourage you to patronize local businesses and restaurants while following all current State and County mandated protocols.

Street Performers

To avoid adversely impacting the streets and sidewalks, Riverside Municipal Code Section 13.21 sets forth appropriate street performer locations on peak days and hours. These reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions balance performers’ rights with the health, safety and welfare of the City’s residents, business owners and Festival visitors.

Street performances will not be permitted on the Mall and on streets and rights-of-way on (1) Mission Inn Avenue from the Pedestrian Mall to Orange Street; (2) all sidewalks and right-of-ways on Orange Street from Mission Inn Avenue to Sixth Street; and (3) all sidewalks and right-of-ways on Sixth Street from Orange Street to the Pedestrian Mall.
