California Christmas Tree Ceremony

Coronado Tree Lighting Ceremony

December 2, 2022, 6 p.m.

Orange Ave.
Coronado, CA

This is a momentous year as the Rotary Park Tree is going to be shining brighter than ever! The Star Pine was planted in 1936 and over 85 years later, it is still the focal point of the Holiday Season in Coronado.

Part of an evening of festivities, there's a Holiday Parade and tree lighting ceremony to kick off the holiday season in style! The parade starts at 6pm, but many come early to Rotary Plaza to sing carols from 5-6pm and anxiously await Santa's arrival via fire truck.

In a collaboration between the City of Coronado, Discover Coronado, Coronado MainStreet & the Coronado Chamber, the 85 foot tall tree will be donned with 12,000 linear feet of lights!

Once Santa arrives, one lucky local family is selected each year to help the Mayor flip the switch on Star Pine, lighting the giant tree in all its glory.
