Winterfest Lighting Ceremony #InTheSquare


We’re dreaming of vibrant holiday lights

Just like the ones we used to know

Where treetops glisten

And children listen . . .

Well, we can’t promise your kids will listen, but the trees will all be glowing with about half a million lights as Winterfest 2021 kicks off #InTheSquare on Saturday, November 27, 2021, with the annual Winterfest Tree Lighting Ceremony, presented by Downtown Cleveland Alliance.

Meet us in The Square for a light-up night with all the trimmings: live music, ice skating, carriage rides, interactive visual arts demonstrations, food trucks, fireworks, and more! Join us in person or celebrate virtually by tuning into a pre-recorded broadcast on WKYC Channel 3 at 7:30 PM.

Admission is free, so bring the whole family for a bright start to your holiday season!


Create memories all season long in The Square! Glide through the Cleveland Foundation Skating Rink surrounded by sparkling lights. Sip complimentary hot cocoa. Capture free photos with Santa. Enjoy the ambiance of the holiday season with a variety of pop-up performances!
