One of the year’s most anticipated annual events, the Oklahoma City Tree Lighting Festival, has returned for its 20th anniversary year!
While we canceled our in-person festival scheduled for November 18th, we are excited to continue our new tradition of creating a virtual version of the event that will be available for all to enjoy.
Thank you to those who tuned in to experience the debut of this year’s Virtual Holiday Special online or on television on Friday, November 26th. The program will be available for viewing on this page until next year’s event, and all are invited to gather with their friends and family to watch this celebration of the season. It is full of performances representing the many cultures and traditions we have in OKC, as well as messages from special guests – including Santa himself! You are sure to see many much-loved familiar sights as well as new favorites leading up to the lighting of the Christmas tree by Mayor David Holt.
An encore presentation will air on KOKH FOX 25 on Christmas Day at 12pm.
