​Celebrate peace, good will and the holiday season at this annual Downtown Culver City event. 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 you can see Santa Claus as he makes a very special visit, all the way from the North Pole! Special performances by local artists from Invertigo Dance Theatre and VOX Femina help us spread the holiday cheer. Downtown Culver City businesses provide the hot cider, hot cocoa, cookies and other festive treats that are sure to make everyone feel merry. 

Stay afterwards for dinner at one of Downtown Culver City’s many restaurants, or take a stroll down the boulevards. Culver City’s downtown area is Southern California’s best kept secret, featuring a wonderful mix of historic buildings, boutiques, theaters, galleries, and unique restaurants opening on to tree-lined streets.
