2023 Tree Lighting Ceremony in Downtown Paducah

Date of Release: 
November 15, 2023

The community is invited to join the Paducah Board of Commissioners for a Tree Lighting Ceremony on Tuesday, November 21. The celebration will begin at 5:30p.m. on Water Street in front of the large floodwall opening between Broadway and Jefferson Street.

To kick off the 2023 holiday season, the Paducah Board of Commissioners will “flip the switch” to illuminate the 26-foot tall Christmas tree at approximately 6 p.m. An additional six feet have been added to the height of last year’s tree.

The celebration includes performances by Clark Elementary's Stomp teams and Concord Elementary's choir group, the Singsations. Parks and Recreation will have a craft table. Plus, there will be hot chocolate.

Lights across downtown will glow for the holiday season including Locomotive 1518 near the Carson Center, trees and shrubs along Broadway, and Paducah City Hall.
