On November 28, 2018, at 6:00 p.m., the Carillon Tree of Light will illuminate the Dayton skyline for the first time during the kickoff to A Carillon Christmas 2018, the Park’s month-long holiday celebration.
A Carillon Christmas transforms Carillon Historical Park into a winter wonderland of sparkle, magic, and holiday cheer. Towering 200 feet, the breathtaking Carillon Tree of Light—Ohio’s largest tree of light—is not only the centerpiece of A Carillon Christmas, but also an undeniable symbol of Christmas in the Miami Valley.
Featuring Santa’s Toy Shop, the Victorian carolers, Midnight Express, Candy Cane Slopes, Carillon Card Company, Letters to Santa, and countless Yuletide attractions, Carillon Historical Park at night, decked out with over 15 miles of Christmas lights, is truly a sight to see.
The Tree of Light Lighting is free. Regular Park admission fees apply to experience A Carillon Christmas. All proceeds support Dayton History in its mission to inspire generations by connecting them with the unique people, places, and events that changed Dayton and the world.
