Holiday Tree Lighting Powered by PECO

Gather your family and friends and help us celebrate the lighting of our spectacular Holiday Tree that will dazzle with bright lights and illuminate the night. Kick-off the official launch of the holidays on the Philadelphia Waterfront complete with festive performances.

This year’s Holiday Tree Lighting Powered by PECO will include 13 acts and 40 performances featuring America’s Got Talent Singers Bianca Ryan and Dylan Zangwill; Ballet Folklorico Yaretzi (a Mexican folk dance group); Gospel singer Raquel E. Morton Britton; the Power Surge Dancers; Trinidad and Tobago Baltimore Steel Orchestra; and many more.

As you stroll the site join Courtney’s Carolers in some holiday cheer and show off your tap skills alongside The Lady Hoofers, before enjoying tasty food and drink from our amazing vendors. Plus, free make-and-take holiday crafts by Cherry Street Pier resident artist organization Portside Art Center will be available while supplies last.
