Lighting of the Tallest Living Christmas Tree

Revel in holiday magic at the lighting of Ferndale's spectacular living Christmas tree, the tallest in America! Decked with colored lights by Ferndale's volunteer firefighters, the radiant spruce at the end of Main Street is visible for miles, a beacon to herald the Christmas season.

Experience small-town Americana at its best as the whole town turns out in anticipation of the lighting, along with the Booster Band, Chameleon Singers, 4-H, scout troops, and more, and celebrates afterward with free hot cocoa and homemade cookies of all kinds, a Ferndale tradition since 1934!

Arrive early for holiday shopping on historic Main Street and dinner at one of Ferndale's top-rated restaurants, or head over to the Ferndale Portuguese Hall Association for the annual Beans & Linguica Dinner from 4-7 p.m.

Please wear masks and maintain social distancing whenever possible to ensure this beloved event is a safe celebration for all!
