Meet Me Under The Fig Tree

Families and friends gathered under the Fairmont Miramar’s Moreton Bay Fig Tree every year to celebrate the season, often donating about 8,500 pounds of non-perishable food items to Ocean Park Community Center and Olympic High School.

This yearly event fosters goodwill for our neighbors, family, friends and strangers alike as we all come together for some holiday activities.

In exchange, the Fairmont Miramar donates its venue, hospitality staff and gourmet treats to the community, creating an annual event worth visiting. To get in, bring two (2) canned goods per person. The collected goods are then donated to the OPCC.

If you find yourself yearning for a Santa Monica visit during the month of December, check out the community page first to see when this one-day event will take place, then plan your visit accordingly.

See you under the fig tree.
