Culver City to Salute the Holidays with Virtual Tree Lighting – Dec. 10

When Culver City’s Downtown Business Association and Parks, Recreation and Social Services Department put two celebrations together for Christmas of 2019, it was the launch of a whole new era of holiday festivities. No one thought it would be so quickly put on hiatus. But the party’s not over- it’s just remote.

An artificial tree (Rocky Mountain Pine, about 22 feet tall)  in it’s designated spot between the Culver Hotel and the Culver Steps is ready to be illuminated on Dec. 10 at 6 pm.

Culver City High School’s Academy of Visual and Performing Arts, a specially created world-premiere dance film by Invertigo Dance Theatre, and VOX Femina vocalist Lesili Beard as well as appearances by Culver City Council members and our special guest, Academy Award-winner Tim Robbins, Artistic Director of the Actors’ Gang Theatre.

Count down with the Mayor as he flips the switch and lights the beautiful 22-foot Rocky Mountain pine tree with over 7500 warm-white LED lights. Downtown Business Association President Darrel Menthe will host and, of course, Santa Claus will be there, and he’ll be telling everyone how you can visit him – online, of course!

To see the program, go to, and a new link will be on the page for the event at Dec. 10 on 6 pm.
