Yorktown Christmas Tree Lighting
December 6 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The holiday fun kicks off with Yorktown’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. This community tradition goes all the way back to 1945 and the York County Historical Committee works hard to keep this ritual going! The tree that is used today is a 20-foot artificial commercial “Giant Everest Fir” tree placed down in Riverwalk Landing.
Everyone is invited to gather at the Yorktown Victory Monument by 6:30 p.m. for live music including a performance by the Fifes and Drums of Yorktown. From there, the procession will make its way from the Victory Monument to Riverwalk Landing, where the tree lighting ceremony will begin. Make sure you stay for a visit from Santa, eager to hear all those wish lists!
