Virtual Surrey Tree Lighting Festival
November 21, 2020
Kick off the holiday season virtually with the Surrey Tree Lighting Festival. Presented by Coast Capital Savings, the City of Surrey will host the 10th annual event virtually on Saturday, November 21 from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Facebook and YouTube Live. Residents and visitors are invited to watch from home as Mayor and Council flip the switch to light Surrey’s 60-ft Christmas tree.
This year’s free, family-friendly virtual event will be hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus and will feature a variety of local performers, choirs and dance groups. Additionally, viewers can expect to see holiday baking, comedy sketches and kids crafts. The popular Holiday Market also returns virtually and will showcase local businesses on the Surrey Tree Lighting Festival website. Following the livestream, the festival will encourage residents to share photos of their favourite holiday traditions, festive lights and decor for a chance to win prizes.
