Night of Lights In Downtown Waukesha

Dec 1, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Bring your family out for the downtown Waukesha tree lighting & chamber networking event. New this year, it is now called the Night of Lights. There will be carols, cards for veterans, hot cocoa, and a countdown to the lighting of the tree…plus a visit from Santa!

Waukesha Tree Lighting, Lantern Stroll, & Walk of Lights Lighting Ceremony

The Night of Lights will kick-off the holiday season in Downtown Waukesha again this year on Friday, December 1 starting at 5:30pm.

Night of Lights includes:

  • Tree Lighting – 5:30pm – Start the night outside the Rotunda (235 W. Broadway) with music, the lighting of the Downtown Christmas tree, and a glimpse at Santa!
  • Lantern Stroll & Caroling – The night continues as we follow Santa from the Rotunda down to the river with a lantern walk. Along the short walk enjoy some caroling outside of our downtown businesses. Make sure to bring along a lantern from home or purchase one at the tree lighting (limited quantities available).
  • Walk of Lights Lighting Ceremony – 6:15pm- The night wraps up with the lighting of the Walk of Lights along Riverfront Street (23 Riverfront St). Stick around after the lights are on for treats, giveaways (including a new Walk of Lights ornament), and the chance to meet Santa!

Please join the Waukesha community and beyond in kicking off the Holiday Season!

Begin the night outside the rotunda (235 West Broadway) at 5:30 pm with the Holiday Tree Lighting. The night continues with a Lantern Stroll and caroling through downtown to Riverfront Street where the city will light the Waukesha Walk of Lights along the river. Bring your own lantern or purchase one up at the tree lighting (limited quantities) and carol with us through downtown to the Riverfront. 

Friday, December 1, beginning at 5:30 pm.
