You’re invited to visit and see the 30-foot Colorado blue spruce illuminated every evening, in President’s Park, throughout the month, December 4, 2021-January 1, 2022.

Steeped in history and tradition, the National Christmas Tree is surrounded by 56 smaller trees decorated with one-of-a-kind ornaments designed by students from across the country (click here to learn more about these decorations); each tree represents a US state or territory as well as the District of Columbia.
