Holiday Tree Lighting

Join us around the Madison Square Park Holiday Tree for a festive evening of family-friendly fun. This year marks the 110th anniversary of the first holiday tree lighting in the park, which occurred in 1912.

Come together with the rest of the park community for this joyful event and participate in free seasonal activities. We’ll also be hosting live music performances by Hannah Kidwell (Courtesy of Tin Pan Alley) and the NYL Singers (from New York Life Insurance Company).

The event will take place in the northern section of the park, and is free and open to all ages. Tree lighting begins at 5 PM. Space is limited, so please consider leaving strollers at home if possible. We hope to see you there!

Thank you to Bethpage Federal Credit Union, Cocoa Store, The Flatiron/NoMad Partnership, Il Florista, The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad, and The Tin Pan Alley Project for sponsoring this event.
