Location: Fountain Square

You are invited to gather to welcome the upcoming holiday season with the annual Evanston Holiday Tree Lighting in Fountain Square. The celebration includes a visit from Evanston Mayor Tisdahl, Rotary International's Associate General Secretary Kathy Kessenich and Santa Claus who arrive at Fountain Square on an Evanston fire truck.

Immediately following the ceremony is a festive warm-up reception with holiday goodies hosted by Rotary International in their Café International at One Rotary Center, at 1560 Sherman Avenue, across from Fountain Square.
In the spirit of holiday giving, warm essentials (socks, long underwear, gloves, hats, etc.) will be accepted at the warm-up reception for donation to Hilda's Place, Evanston's emergency housing and support services for the homeless. Hilda's provides more than 12,600 nights of shelter and serves 20,000 meals per year to those in need.

Downtown Evanston will continue the tradition of the "green" tree lighting ceremony with thousands of reusable LED lights decorating the majestic tree.
