Jack London Square Tree Lighting Ceremony


Oakland’s favorite holiday tradition promises to deliver holiday magic to the Oakland waterfront with the lighting of a spectacular 55-foot Mount Shasta Fir Tree adorned with 5,000 sparking white lights and 600 colorful ornaments.

The festivities include live music and entertainment from local musicians and arts groups, holiday pop-up shops, and a special appearance by Santa Claus! As always, it's FREE to attend - with tasty treats and holiday drinks available for purchase.

We'll also be hosting a donation drive to collect non-perishable foods, unwrapped toys, and gently worn coats for the Oakland Fire Department and One Warm Coat - please give back to your community and donate an item, big or small.
