Must-Visit Holiday Light Display Festivals and Events in the DMV This Year


DC Holiday Lights – DC  National Christmas Tree Lighting

Among the world’s most celebrated tree lightings, the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony takes place on the Ellipse, an open area located just south of the White House in Washington, D.C. The National Christmas Tree is planted on the Ellipse especially for this event. The President traditionally participates in the ceremony, either by attending in person or by providing a video message. The President, along with the First Family, usually flips the switch to illuminate the National Christmas Tree, symbolizing the start of the holiday festivities. While the window to participate in the ticket lottery has passed, you can still enjoy the tree and surrounding light displays through Jan. 1. Pick a date, then we’ll help you pick a vehicle.

Baltimore Holiday Lights – Monument Lighting

To begin the season in Baltimore, the historic Mount Vernon neighborhood will illuminate the Washington Monument on Dec. 7 with festive lights to celebrate the holiday season. Crews adorn the monument with thousands of twinkling lights, creating a spectacular display visible from various vantage points around Baltimore. The festive illumination will transform this historic architecture into a symbol of holiday cheer on December 7th.
