Holiday Tree Lighting

The free, family-friendly Civic Center Plaza Holiday Tree Lighting on December 5, 5-7pm, will feature musical performances, the Tap Dancing Christmas Trees, and Boxcar Theatre holiday characters including the Grinch and Santa, led by Artistic Director Nick A. Olivero.

This festive event will also feature a toy giveaway for 400 kids from the San Francisco Police Department’s Northern Station and Another Planet Entertainment, activities such as DIY ornaments with SF Etsy, and free books from the San Francisco Public Library. Expect delicious holiday bites and drinks, snow flurries, and — new this year — the adjacent Winter Park Ice Rink!

The event is sponsored by the Civic Center Community Benefit District, San Francisco Police Department’s Northern Station, San Francisco Public Works, San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department, Another Planet Entertainment, and Civic Center Commons.
