Holiday Events in SF Parks

Tree Lighting
Join us for “Winter Lights in Golden Gate Park” on Thursday, December 7, from 4 to 8 p.m., featuring the 88th annual lighting of the city’s official holiday tree at McLaren Lodge (501 Stanyan Street and Fell) at 6 p.m., followed by a stunning new light art installation at the Conservatory of Flowers (100 JFK Drive) at 7 p.m.
From McLaren Lodge to Conservatory Valley, this free, family-friendly event will include carnival rides, a cookie factory, arts and crafts for kids, visits with Santa, music and live entertainment.
The Conservatory of Flowers light show will celebrate the natural wonders of the seasons with “Photosynthesis: Love for All Seasons,” a new series of artistic illuminations on the building’s iconic façade that will appear nightly through Spring 2018. For more information, click here.
