POSTPONED: Chamber of Commerce to host Annual Holiday Tree Lighting in Downtown Rochester

Nov 30, 2023

UNTIL TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5 @ 5:30pm in Central Square, Rochester

Due to an unfavorable weather forecast, we have rescheduled the 2023 Holiday Tree Lighting for the safety and enjoyment of all involved.

The Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce is pleased to light up the season with its annual Holiday Tree Lighting.

The Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held on Friday, December 1, 2023, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm at Central Square, in downtown Rochester. This event, underwritten by First Seacoast Bank, will include the ceremony and lighting of Rochester’s tree for the first time to kick off the 2023 Holiday Season.

A program of family activities will also take place as part of the Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony, sponsored by Profile Bank. Those in attendance will enjoy the reading of The Night Before Christmas by Mayor Paul Callaghan, and several activities will take place including dance performances and caroling, conducted by Studio 109 Dance, Voice & Drama, complimentary cookies and hot chocolate, provided by Potter’s House Bakery & Café, a very special visit from Santa Claus, and more!

For more information about the Holiday Tree Lighting or for information and entry forms for Rochester’s “A Polar Express Christmas” Holiday Parade on Sunday, December 3, call (603) 332-508.
