The Tree Lighting is a Downtown Boise Tradition! Boise Mayor Bieter lights up the holiday tree on The Grove Plaza in Downtown Boise, while families in attendance sing carols and join in the candle lighting ceremony. The community is invited to attend this traditional event that lights up downtown and welcomes the holiday season to the Treasure Valley. Grab a coffee/hot chocolate from any nearby coffee shop downtown!

Special Thanks to the partners who make the tree lighting ceremony possible: Idaho Central Credit Union, City of Boise Mayor’s Office, Boise City Forestry, KTVB, and the members and merchants of the Downtown Boise Association.
