Dignity Health Holiday Tree

One, two, TREE!

The holidays might look different this year, but yule still love what we have in store for you! This year, experience the Thanksgiving-eve tradition of lighting the holiday tree at the Old Sacramento Waterfront in your fuzzy socks and matching pajamas with the comforts of hot cocoa and home! Streaming live on Facebook, enjoy the official kick-off to the season with the Dignity Health Holiday Tree Lighting on Wednesday, November 25 at 6 p.m. Viewable from afar, the Dignity Health Holiday Tree lights will sparkle every day through New Year’s Day alongside enhanced district decor and lighting powered by SMUD to inspire holiday spirit throughout the merriest season.

Discover new memories all season long! While the traditional large tree lighting ceremony and nightly Theatre of Lights performances are on hold for 2020, you’ll still find a “tree-mendous” holiday at the historic Old Sacramento Waterfront this year! If it’s that one-of-a-kind gift you’re after or a holiday-inspired feast, exploring – and voting for – newly decorated storefronts and finding new heights on the 65′ Waterfront Wheel, come find it at the Old Sacramento Waterfront.
