Christmas Tree Lighting


The Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is sponsored yearly by the Oak Ridge Woman’s Club and 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 Commemorative Walk on the east side of the Oak Ridge Library parking lot for a brief ceremony ending with the lighting of the tree. A reception will be held in the Civic Center gymnasium immediately following the tree lighting. Participants will enjoy refreshments and seasonal music.
