Christmas Tree Lighting

– December 8 2021

The Washington Square Association’s annual tradition continues!


On Wednesday, December 8th from 6pm-7pm head to the Arch to join in the fun with the Rob Susman Brass Quartet as children and grown-ups alike sing holiday songs. The sparkling lights on the resplendent tree will be turned on to mark the beginning of festive winter evenings. Santa Claus himself has promised to appear, candy canes in hand, and lead the children in the illumination countdown. The Washington Square Association provides songbooks so everyone can sing along.

The Association provides the annual 45-foot Christmas tree just south of the Arch that will be lit for the season between the hours of 4 pm and 1 am.
