Community Tree Lighting

Join Celebrate Shelton at the Rotary Pavilion at Veterans Memorial Park in Downtown Shelton for the Ninth Annual Community Tree Lighting on Friday, December 1st at 5:30pm. The tree lighting will be at 7 PM.

Hot cocoa and cookies will be provided, as we enjoy shopping with handmade artisans and Boy Scouts of America Housatonic Council troops. Ornament making will take place all night!

There will be performances by Valley Shakespeare Festival and Center Stage Theatre alongside our community bonfires!


The downtown tree lighting will be held at 7:00pm.

Santa will arrive shortly thereafter on the Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Fire Truck. Children are encouraged to bring their letters to Santa and take a special photo. Guests are reminded to bundle up in case it's a chilly night.

Celebrate the holidays all year long by listening to our Community Tree Lighting playlist available now on Spotify.

Bring a toy!

Please bring a new, unwrapped toy for children ages 0-12 to help the families directly in our community that are in great need! Let's give them the best holiday yet!
