Christmas Tree Lighting


The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is sponsored yearly by the Recreation and Parks Department. The tree, a Norway Spruce, was presented by the Woman’s Club to the City and has become part of a growing community tradition.

Participants should gather at the AK Bissell Park Pavilion for seasonal music and light refreshments beginning at 6:30pm.  After the program, participants will walk to the Commemorative Walk on the east side of the Oak Ridge Library parking lot for a brief ceremony ending with the lighting of the tree.  In the event of inclement weather, the program will begin in the Civic Center Gymnasium (Shep Lauter Room).

Next Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony: December 6, 2019 at 6:30 p.m.
