Welcome the 102nd Chicago Christmas Tree to a new location in Millennium Park, a location recognized around the world for its architectural landmarks and cultural programming.
The 102nd Annual Christmas Tree was donated by the Voelker family of Northlake, Illinois. Their 63-foot Colorado Spruce was selected out of 130 submissions, and they will join Mayor Rahm Emmanuel to light the tree at the official Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 24.
Special visits with Santa Claus begin on Tuesday, November 24, immediately following the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony until 8 pm and continue on various dates throughout December.
The 102nd Tree Lighting Ceremony is presented by the Department of Cultural affairs and sponsored in part by the Chicago Cultural Mile Association. Additional support provided by 93.9 MY FM and the Chicago Transit Authority. The lights adorning the Christmas tree are donated by IBEW Local 134.
Admission to the Tree Lighting Ceremony and all other holiday activities in Millennium Park is free.
