2022 Annual Downtown Culver City Holiday Tree Lighting Sled-tacular!

December 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Downtown Culver City is delighted to bring snow and sledding back for the first time since 2019 to this year’s Annual Tree Lighting Sled-tacular!

To enjoy the snow, be sure to REGISTER IN ADVANCE to sign your waiver so you can get right to sledding.

The 2022 Tree Lighting Sled-tacular is produced by the Culver City Downtown Business Association with Amazon Studios as the presenting sponsor, and support from The Culver Studios, The Culver Steps, Ting, Culver City Parks Recreation & Community Services and the City of Culver City and is produced by the Culver City Downtown Business Association.

Celebrate peace, good will and the holiday season at this annual Downtown Culver City event. Count down with the Mayor as he flips the switch and lights the beautiful 22-foot Rocky Mountain pine tree with over 7500 warm-white LED lights. Downtown Business Association President Darrel Menthe will host and you can see Santa Claus as he makes a very special visit, bringing the North Pole here to Culver City! Special performances by local students from Culver City schools help us spread the holiday cheer. Downtown Culver City businesses will provide the hot cider, cocoa, cookies and other festive treats that are sure to make everyone feel merry.

Stay afterwards for dinner at one of Downtown Culver City’s many restaurants, or take a stroll down the boulevards. Culver City’s downtown area is Southern California’s best kept secret, featuring a wonderful mix of historic buildings, boutiques, theaters, galleries and unique restaurants opening onto tree-lined streets.


Can’t make it in person? You can WATCH the official tree lighting ceremony LIVE on YouTube at 6:00pm PST on December 1st!
