National Christmas Tree Lighting

How We Help

For almost 90 years, the spectacle of the National Christmas Tree Lighting has represented one our country’s most important and longest-standing holiday, and national park, traditions. In recent years, the National Park Service and National Park Foundation have brought the tradition to new heights, furthering its reach both in the United States and abroad. Featuring A-list performers along with special guests, the First Family, this annual event is now recognized as one of the country’s premier, eagerly anticipated holiday traditions – in one of our country’s most celebrated national parks.
