From: 05:30 PM to 07:30 PM

The Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony at Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River will take place Friday, December 2, 2022 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. 

Everyone is welcome to participate in this Yuletide Celebration! Join the carolers in a sing-along of traditional holiday songs while awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus. At 6:00 pm sharp, Santa will light the tree for the 2022 holiday season. Afterwards, hot beverages will be served, and you can visit with Santa. All activities take place outdoors so please dress accordingly. The Manor House will not be open. In the spirit of the season, we will be collecting canned goods and new unwrapped toys for those in need in our community. All donations are appreciated.

Admission is free. There is limited parking, so please arrive early. The entrance gates will close when the parking field has reached full capacity.  For more information about this event, please call Bayard Cutting Arboretum at (631) 581-1002 or visit
