Tree Lighting Ceremony

November 19, 2022
George Hix Riverside Plaza (184 W. Elkhorn Ave.)


Take part in a holiday tradition that dates back more than 60 years! Estes Park's Tree Lighting Ceremony will feature free holiday festivities, including pictures with Santa, holiday craft kits, horse-drawn wagon rides and llama photo ops. The activities begin at 3:30 PM, with the official tree lighting at 5:30 PM.


Monetary donations will be accepted for the Blue Santa program, organized by Estes Park Police Auxiliary. Each December, non-perishable food and hygiene products are purchased and delivered through the program for disabled, shut-in and elderly community members that need a little extra holiday cheer. Nominations for community members to receive a delivery should be submitted to Captain Rick Life at 970-577-3872 or by Nov. 30.
