The 109th Annual Christmas Tree will return to Millennium Park as the centerpiece of a full slate of holiday programming
Chicago’s official Christmas Tree will be illuminated on November 18 at 6 p.m. The tree will remain illuminated through January 8. The lighting of the Christmas Tree serves as the centerpiece of the City’s beloved annual holiday traditions in Millennium Park. This year’s festivities will include:
McCormick Tribune Ice Rink in Millennium Park, open starting November 18 until March 5 (weather permitting). Admission to the ice rink will be free but online tickets will be required. Free skating lessons will be available, made possible by the McDonald’s Active Lifestyles Endowment managed by the Millennium Park Foundation.
