Special Events

The City of San Mateo hosts and supports a variety of special events throughout the year. Many, like Eggstravaganza, the Holiday Festival of Dance, National Night Out, and the Central Park Music Series, are long-standing traditions that help to build community and provide family-friendly fun for San Mateo residents. More recent events such as the Citywide Yard Sale and San Mateo on Ice are growing in popularity and provide year-round activities for residents and visitors alike.
