Welcome to the 2020 Annual Downtown Culver City

Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration

We are pleased to share with you a replay of Culver City's annual tree lighting celebration from California’s Heart of Screenland! Enjoy performances from Culver City High School’s Academy of Visual and Performing Arts, a specially created world-premiere dance film by Invertigo Dance Theatre, and VOX Femina vocalist Lesili Beard as well as appearances by Culver City Council members and our special guest, Academy Award-winner Tim Robbins, Artistic Director of the Actor’s Gang Theatre. Count down with the Mayor as he flips the switch and lights the beautiful 22-foot Rocky Mountain pine tree with over 7500 warm-white LED lights. Downtown Business Association President Darrel Menthe will host and, of course, Santa Claus will be there, and he’ll be telling everyone how you can visit him - online, of course! It is 2020 after all!

The 2020 Annual Downtown Culver City Tree Lighting Celebration is presented by Amazon Studios with support from The Culver Studios, Stoelt Productions and the City of Culver City and is produced by the Culver City Downtown Business Association.

And please enjoy the memories our community has created through our virtual photo booth at the Holiday Tree!
