Piedmont Arts will host its third annual Christmas Tree Lighting in the Gravely-Lester Art Garden on Thursday, December 3 at 5 p.m.

Fun for the whole family, this year’s event will feature a carol sing-a-long, complimentary snacks and hot chocolate, a take-home craft kit for kids and a visit from Santa.

Just like the sculptures in its Art Garden, the museum’s Christmas tree will be a work of art. Created by Ian Hogg using more than 3,000 lights, the tree will be lit at sunset on December 3 and brighten the Art Garden through New Year’s Day.

“As always, the Art Garden Christmas tree will be a real show-stopper,” said Programs Coordinator Holly Burton. “Ian Hogg has generously donated his time to create this beautiful tree that brings joy to the community throughout the holiday season.”

Guests are encouraged to practice social distancing. Masks required when not eating or drinking. Admission is free.

This event is sponsored by King’s Grant.
