The Holiday Season is Getting a Fun and Snowy Start: Downtown Culver City Celebrates its Annual Tree Lighting with 25 tons of Fresh Snow!

Hip & Historic Downtown Culver City is pleased to welcome its residents and neighbors to the 2022 Holiday Tree Lighting Sled-tacular, an annual beloved tradition since 2005 that has been enjoyed by thousands of attendees and participants. This year’s holiday season will be magically ushered in with a winter wonderland – 25 tons of fresh snow right at Town Plaza in Downtown Culver City! Expect lots of family fun, laughter, and memories with sledding, snowmen, carnival games, booths, and visits to Santa and the North Pole. Also expect a wonderfully delightful Tree Lighting Ceremony with singing, dancing, and music by Culver City’s many talented children and youth, followed by a boisterous countdown led by the Mayor as he lights the beautiful 22-foot artificial Rocky Mountain Pine adorned with 7500 warm LED-lights. After the tree is lit, free sweet treats and warm drinks will be offered courtesy of Downtown Culver City businesses. So bring your mittens and reindeer hats, and your sense of joy and wonderment, and join this seasonal hit for neighbors throughout the region as we frolic under the majestic holiday tree that soars over Downtown Culver City.
