15th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Festival: Saturday, December 9, 2017

The Tumwater Christmas Tree Lighting Festival is held each year on the 2nd Saturday in December, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., at the Tumwater City Hall & Headquarters Fire Station.

This popular holiday event includes games, holiday crafts, performances by local and school choirs, and of course, the lighting of the tree. Santa will arrive on an antique fire truck after the ceremonial tree lighting to share his joyful laugh and spread some holiday cheer. Join us at this special event; you are sure to have a festive time!

Event Parking available in the adjacent Attorney General's Office parking lot (7141 Cleanwater Dr SW). No parking at the Fire Station; disabled parking at City Hall. Please call (360) 754-4160 for more information.

Thank you to our 2016 event sponsors: Tumwater Downtown Association, Hanson Motors, The Olympian, MultiCare Indigo Urgent Care, Toyota of Olympia, Northstar Church, and Heritage Bank.
