Traditionally, this event happens on the day after Thanksgiving each year. Local businesses and organizations in Downtown Kenosha invite you to start your holidays here!
The City of Kenosha Christmas tree lighting ceremony kicks off the holiday season as part of the "Lightin' Up" celebration downtown. Join us for a holiday program featuring musical performances and a visit from Santa, beginning at 3:45 p.m. with tree lighting at 4:30 p.m. This free family program is sure to put you in the holiday mood.
Each fall the City parks department harvests a Christmas tree donated by a local citizen.
The Lightin' Up celebration continues downtown with family activities, live entertainment, and special promotions at Downtown businesses throughout the evening. For further details about specials, entertainment, and activities, check back here closer to the date.
