87th Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting on December 4

It's (almost) Christmas in the city! A magical time of year! 

The 2019 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting will take place on Wednesday, December 4 at Rockefeller Plaza. The tree will remain lit and on display on the plaza between West 48th and 51st Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenues through Friday, January 17, 2020.

The annual tree lighting ceremony is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.

According to the Rockefeller Center website, the 2019 Christmas Tree will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. "Once the holidays have passed and crowds have dispersed, the tree comes down and is milled, treated and made into lumber that is used for home building," they explain.
