Start your holiday season at the Vanderbilt Museum with the annual Tree Lighting, a free, family-friendly event!
Each year, on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, the Vanderbilt holds its annual Tree Lighting in the courtyard of the Mansion.
Lead sponsor is Northwell Health. Other sponsors include Lidl grocery stores and J.G. Brands Christmas Tree Sales, Inc.
This year’s Tree Lighting will be held on Saturday, November 30, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. This year, Keri Hollander and her family donated a spectacular, 25-foot spruce from their Centereach front yard for the Mansion courtyard. They’ll be there to turn on the lights.
The event includes performances by the Northport Chorale and singer Eva Erickson, carol singing, ornament-making for children, and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, a great family photo opportunity!
Visitors can enjoy treats provided by Lidl, Long Island’s next new grocery store. Stop by the Lidl food truck for free snack samples.
A big thanks to J.G. Brands Christmas Tree Sales, Inc. who have generously donated a balsam fir to be displayed in front of the columns as guests enter the property.
