Come witness the annual illumination of SFO on Tuesday, December 5, 2017, which has been a holiday tradition for over 10 years.

Everyone is invited to celebrate with airport employees, their families, and SFO’s own team of holiday carolers who turn out to see one of the largest public displays in the entire Bay Area burst into light.

It all happens at SFO at the Connecting Bridge between Garages A and G. (Pedestrian access is available from Level 3 of Garage G.) The lighting ceremony takes place at 5:15pm and typically the holiday-themed lights stay on a SFO through January 1st.

Watch a behind-the-scenes video of SFO’s holiday lighting program featuring over 150 miles of wiring, more than 3.3 million LED lights, and over 140 LED projections with over 100,0000 color combinations.
