LIVE EVENT CANCELED. The 2021 event will be televised on KGW 8. See event website for current information.
Portland’s Annual Tree Lighting, presented by SmartPark, will safely unite Portlanders in a special televised broadcast on KGW 8 the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 26th, at 6:00PM.
This half-hour special program hosted by KGW will showcase regional high school band and choral groups who will lead Portlanders in a televised caroling sing-along. The celebration, which will replace the traditional in-person event held in Portland’s Living Room, will include onscreen lyrics and downloadable songbooks for families to celebrate the kick-off of the holiday season from their own Living Rooms!
