Event Details

Join Castro Merchants and a star-studded lineup for the official lighting ceremony of the famous Castro Holiday Tree, Monday, November 28, 6:00 PM at Castro Street at 18th Street.

We are pulling out all the stops with entertainment, sing alongs and rousing speeches. Scheduled to attend: Mayor London Breed, State Senator Scott Wiener, Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, the incomparable Donna Sachet, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band and a few more surprises.

We encourage everyone to take the time to attend as we officially ring (and sing!) in the holiday shopping season in the Castro. We are very pleased to be able to bring this touch of festive flair to the neighborhood and provide an Instagrammable moment for residents and visitors alike, bringing much-needed consumer foot traffic to the Castro to support small businesses.

This year’s tree is dedicated to the memory of long-time, beloved Castro Merchants administrator Richard Magary, who passed away in December 2021.

The Castro Holiday Tree is made possible through generous local donors. If you would like to donate to support the tree, go to www.castromerchants.com/donations

This is a smoke-free event.
