Holiday Tree Lighting
The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce invites you to kick off the holidays at the 24th annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony in Central Park in downtown Winter Park.  Bring the entire family to this free event for an evening of holiday cheer as Park Avenue is transformed into a Winter Wonderland.

Kick off the evening with performances by local children's choirs. The tree lighting will be broadcast live on WFTV - Channel 9 with anchor Bob Opsahl.  Afterwards, families can enjoy refreshments, activities and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Performances will feature:


  • St. Margaret Mary Catholic School Choir
  • Park Maitland Glee Club
  • New Warner Chapel
  • Winter Park High School's Belle Chanson Choir
  • Orlando Harmony


Holiday Card Competition
Young artists are encouraged to enter the annual Holiday Card Competition.  Students can submit their illustrations of what the holidays mean to them for judging.  Winners will have their artwork digitized and printed on vinyl banners to decorate the light poles along Morse Boulevard.

Applications due Friday, November 15.
