Event Details

SF City Hall Lights Up for Christmas 2022

Every evening at sunset, over 220 state-of-the-art LED lighting fixtures illuminate City Hall’s exterior. Normally, a soft white glow shows off the play of light and shadow on the full façade and dome. Frequently, special plaza façade lighting schemes honor or celebrate events, seasons, and holidays.

City Hall will be lit up in green and red most nights in the lead up to Christmas and afterward.
