Event time is displayed in your time zone.
Morningside Park: West 110th to West 123rd St

Step into a world of wonder as Friends of Morningside Park again light up the tallest living holiday tree in a New York City park — a magnificent 50-foot evergreen standing tall across the 121st Street Oval in Morningside Park. It has quickly become an Upper Manhattan favorite with Manhattan Borough President, Mark Levine, exclaiming, "Rockefeller Center has got nothing on us!" at the 2022 lighting last year. 

This event is free to the public. Festivities will begin at 5:00 pm, following an ugly sweater dog parade, with music and refreshments. The tree will be lit promptly at 6:00 pm after a few opening remarks.
