Rehoboth Beach Christmas Tree Lighting

Friday, November 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:00 pm


The official kickoff to the 2022 holiday season will be the City of Rehoboth’s Tree Lighting and Sing-Along at the Bandstand on Friday, November 25th, from 6:30-7:00pm. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Clear Space Theatre Company and officially illuminate the city’s most famous tree at 7pm.

Song lyrics for the sing-along will be available to Cape Gazette subscribers in the ‘Tis the Season holiday guide insert coming out soon!

A 20-year-old green giant arborvitae will serve as the City of Rehoboth Beach’s Christmas tree this year. The 20- to 25-foot tree is being donated by Dean and Debbie Smith.

City elves Harry Caswell and George Plummer & Son will provide tree removal and transportation services to the city this year. Caswell is taking over the job from John L. Briggs & Co., who has assisted the city with Christmas tree installation since the tradition started in the 1980s. Delmarva Power also assists with tree installation at the bandstand.

Everyone is invited to this cherished annual tradition where thousands of spectators gather to ring in the holiday spirit in downtown Rehoboth Beach. Come early and stay late! After the tree is lit, enjoy dinner with your friends and family and do your holiday shopping downtown.
