The magic of the holiday season begins in Historic Downtown Cedar City on Saturday, November 26th, 2022, with festivities beginning as early as 4:00 p.m. at the Downtown Lighting Ceremony and opening night of the Holiday Tree Jubilee fundraising event. We will welcome the big man himself, Santa, and bring the magic to downtown with a holiday lighting ceremony. SEE MAP HERE.

Perhaps the most exciting element of this year’s production is a “Fly with Santa” contest, which gives one lucky child the opportunity to arrive on a helicopter with the Big Man himself, alongside one of Southern Utah University’s (SUU) Aviation instructors. You won't want to miss it!

This FREE community event will feature food trucks, professional entertainment, tree decorating, prizes and giveaways, and SO MUCH MORE! We encourage you to visit our many downtown businesses who have offered extended hours for this special event! CLICK HERE FOR BUSINESS MAP.

Upon arrival, Santa will make his way to Festival Hall to take free photos with families where donations are welcome to help the Holiday Tree Jubilee fundraiser. Along with Santa, everyone can enjoy free hot chocolate, dozens of Christmas trees to view and win, auction items, a children’s area, and much more.
