Santa Claus Lighting the Tree at Union Station Los Angeles

Union Station Los Angeles Tree Lighting Ceremony 2021

We’re so excited to announce that on Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 6:30 p.m., we’ll be returning to the iconic Union Station Los Angeles for the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Last year’s tree lighting ceremony went virtual, but this year the event is live with the magic of stars and snow on the station’s South Patio. Live performances from local groups, a “live” mural from eclectic artist Septerhed and an appearance by a special guest from the North Pole, will vault you into the holiday spirit.

Fun for the Entire Family

To kick off to the season, the historic station will illuminate a towering 30-foot tree as guests are immersed in thousands of glistening lights and snow flurries on the striking South Patio while enjoying a free hot cocoa and holiday cookie bar. The fun, festive, family-friendly holiday celebration will also feature a holiday arts and crafts zone, a custom photo opportunity and Santa selfies.

The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with the tree lighting slated for 7:15 p.m.
