Enjoy the Presidio’s historic holiday tree for the season! Since 1991, the now 55-foot-tall Norfolk Island pine has glowed with strings of lights at night beginning the first Friday in December, bringing the warmth of the season into the hearts of all.

The tradition of tree lighting at the US Army base began even earlier in 1957, for families who lived and worked in the Presidio to enjoy the holidays. It continued when the Presidio opened its gates to all as a public park 27 years ago. Enjoy a quiet moment with the holiday lights, which will shine for passersby each night in December.
