The 84th annual Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting will take place on November 30, 2016 from 7pm-9pm at Rockefeller Plaza between 48th and 51st St, and Fifth and Sixth Ave.
Thousands of people are expected to attend (and, of course, it will also be on NBC), but, if you can’t make it, no worries, the tree will remain on display until 8pm on January 7th, 2017. https://www.rockefellercenter.com/holidays/rockefeller-center-christmas-tree-lighting/
The 94 foot Norway Spruce, which hails from Oneonta, NY, will have over 50,000 twinkling multi-colored LED lights and is topped by a Swarovski star.
The Christmas in Rockefeller Center event will be hosted by Today Show anchors Matt Lauer, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie. Stellar entertainment will be provided by Josh Groban, Sarah McLachlan, Tony Bennet, Neil Diamond, Tori Kelly, Dolly Parton, Jordan Smith, Garth Brooks, and Trisha Yearwood. And, don’t forget that the legendary Radio City Rockettes will also kick up their heels.
The annual lighting of the Christmas tree at Bryant Park, 42nd St between Fifth and Sixth Ave, will take place on Friday, December 2, 2016 beginning at 6pm, and will be a celebration in support of humanitarian aid charity (RED). This year, the show will be narrated by Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Leading up to the lighting of the tree and fireworks display will be top-rated musical entertainment provided by the big band Lapis Luna, as well as Olympic and World Champion skaters Johnny Weir, Javier Fernandez, Kimmy Meissner, Kaitlyn Weaver & Andrew Poje and The Haydenettes.
If the tree is anything like last year, it will be a 50-foot Norway Spruce, that will have 30,000 red and white LED lights and nearly 3,500 ornaments in silver, white, red and blue.
After the ceremony, stick around and skate to Lapis Luna, who will perform an hour long concert of holiday favorites and standards.
