Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017

When does the Christmas season start in your home? The day after Thanksgiving? Or when the official City tree gets lit up? If it’s the latter, then you’ll want to watch the Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017 yourself on Friday, December 1st.

The Christmas season doesn't officially start until the Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017 takes place. This year, that's on Dec 1st at Mission Park.

What: Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017
Where: Mission Park (185 E Santa Clara St)
When: Friday, December 1st, 3 pm to 8 pm
Contact: San Buenaventura Mission (805) 643-4318

Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017

Main Street will be shut down in front of the San Buenaventura Mission specifically for the Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017 ceremony. While the tree lighting won’t take place until after dark (around 6:45 pm), there will be plenty to keep you busy beforehand. Visit Santa’s Village for holiday-themed fun. You can also start checking off the items on your Christmas list by purchasing one-of-a-kind gifts found at the Village. Santa even plans to stop by for pictures with the children.

Watch Jesus’ birthplace come alive before your eyes with the mission’s living nativity. Choirs sing Christmas classics while other live entertainment performs throughout the day on two separate stages in Mission Park. They say it never rains in California (which, of course, is silly because it absolutely does). But, this year, it snows. That’s right. Guests at the Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017 event enjoy a beautiful winter setting complete with snowfall. Food and beverages will also be available for sale.

Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017 Parking

Parking for this holiday event can be found at the Ventura County Museum, at the Knights of Columbus Hall or in any of several lots available in the downtown area.

Hopefully, you and your family can make it to the Downtown Ventura Tree Lighting 2017. Santa should arrive just as the lights go on. Snow and surf within minutes of each other. Only Southern California can offer you both. Happy holidays!

Ventura Tree Lighting

Ring in the holidays in style at the Ventura tree lighting on Fri, Nov 30, 2012 at 5pm. Free refreshments, live entertainment and a visit from Santa are all scheduled for attendees.Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s official, folks.  We have stepped into the holiday zone.  Tomorrow, November 30th, the City of Ventura will be holding its official tree lighting ceremony to ring in the holidays.

Beginning at 5pm, visitors and residents of the city are invited to gather in front of the Mission trees in downtown Ventura (211 E Main St) for live entertainment, including a choir singing traditional holiday favorites and a sing-a-long with spectators.  This year, the 20 foot tall tree has been decorated with new LED lights. Thanks to the generous donations of Ventura citizens, the Mission’s trees will be decked out in beautiful, multi-colored lights for the entire year, not just Christmastime.  You can even enjoy some light snacks and other goodies for free.

The mayor and other government officials will give a few brief words before the Ventura holiday tree is lit at 6:15pm.  After that, Santa is scheduled to ride in on a Ventura fire engine.  He’s given the reindeer the night off.  Free parking will be available surrounding downtown Ventura.

Start the holidays off right.  Come to the official Ventura tree lighting ceremony in downtown Ventura tomorrow, November 30th.  Festivities begin at 5pm but the fun lasts much longer.  Happy holidays!
