Marin and Bay Area Holiday Tree and Menorah Lighting Events 2022
All across Marin and the Bay Area, communities celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with a traditional tree lighting ceremony. This year, some are offered online and some have been restructured to conform to social distancing protocols; many have been canceled altogether. Here's our list of Christmas tree and Hanukkah menorah lighting ceremonies and celebrations in Marin County, San Francisco, and Sonoma County. We'll be adding more events as the holidays near, so check back often!
