Despite ongoing Covid concerns, Washington Square Park’s Christmas tree lighting will take place, after one year’s absence in person, on Wednesday, December 8th at 6 p.m. Santa will be on hand and caroling will take place, as is the long-time tradition, with the Rob Susman Brass Quartet.

On Christmas Eve, Friday, December 24th, 5-6 p.m., caroling will take place again under the Arch.

These events are sponsored by the city’s oldest community group, the Washington Square Association.

In 2019, a rainy Christmas tree lighting took place.
