2021 Spirit of Gresham Holiday Tree Lighting

Kick off the holiday season with the 2021 Spirit of Gresham Tree Lighting event.

Holiday light cruise, 4:00-5:30 pm

To celebrate the 30th year in a bright and merry way, we will host the first Gresham Holiday Light Cruise, presented by Gresham Ford. The cruise will begin at 4:00 pm in Rockwood. Participants will follow a route weaving throughout all of Gresham's neighborhoods, with vehicles decorated in holiday lights. There will even be prizes from the North Pole!

Register your holiday vehicle.

Tree lighting, 6:00-7:30 pm

Once the holiday light cruise makes its way to the Arts Plaza, we'll gather as a community to light the 70-foot ponderosa pine with Mayor Stovall, City Councilors and Santa Claus. Enjoy international holiday music and special holiday-inspired treats from all around the world. 

Spirit of Giving 

The City of Gresham is partnering with Gresham Ford and SnowCap Community Charities to host a canned food drive to support local families in need. If you are able, please consider bringing non-perishable foods or donations to share as part of this  year's Spirit of Giving event. 

This winter season we want all of Gresham to celebrate their many holidays, traditions and light up the community to spread holiday cheer.
