Celebrate the season at our 17th annual Holiday Lighting in northern Central Park.

Watch the live carving of holiday ice sculptures by Okamoto Studio, sing carols on the Plaza, take your photo with Santa (bring your own camera), and warm up with hot cocoa and cookies!

Event culminates with the lighting of the Dana Discovery Center, and a flotilla of 17 trees on the Harlem Meer.

Families only; no groups, please. Strollers are not allowed on the Plaza. Stroller parking will be provided.

The event, organized by the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy, is made possible by our founding sponsor ConEdison.
