Holiday Tree Lighting

Public Programs
Friday, Nov 18 2022 @ 7pm

Atlanta History Center will kick-off the holiday season with a new annual tradition and you’re invited! Join us in Veteran’s Park for a special tree lighting ceremony with our new 50 ft. Christmas tree followed by music, children’s activities, cash bar, roaming pictures with Santa and more in the museum. Special performances will take place throughout the night from the SCAD HoneyBees, Atlanta Classical Academy, and The Dickens Carolers.

Guests can come early and enjoy dinner at Souper Jenny! For this event only, Souper Jenny will serve a limited dinner menu from 5pm-8:30pm. The evening’s menu will be posted here prior to the event.

AHC members are also invited to a member only event prior to the tree lighting presentation which will include festive pictures with Santa at our Texas Locomotive, a craft activity for kids, reduced rate cash bar, a special performance by high school pop string quartet The Alta Strings, and more. Members will also have early access and a reserved area to watch the tree lighting ceremony.

We look forward to ringing in the holiday season with you and launching this new annual tradition at AHC!
