Roxborough Tree Lighting Ceremony and Happy Holidays from Rox Kick-Off

December 8 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Roxborough Development Corporation presents Happy Holidays from Rox and the Annual Roxborough Tree Lighting Ceremony – the official kick-off to the three day holiday pop-up market and weekend of festivities. Happy Holidays from Rox expanded this year to a 3-day holiday event with a NEW indoor pop-up market beginning Friday, December 8 -10th 2023 at the Roxborough Pocket Park (6170 and 6174 Ridge Avenue). Over 20 unique crafters, artists, treats, and beverages will fill the space next to the park (previously the Royal Bargain Dollar Store). A tree lighting ceremony will kick off the weekend at 5:30pm with five brilliantly lit Douglas fir trees matching the muralled walls of the park on Friday night. Two of these trees will serve as wishing trees, inviting children to decorate wooden ornaments and inscribe their heartfelt wishes. Look for live music provided by Watershed Church. Thank you to sponsors for helping make this event possible, MGMT Residential, Independence Blue Cross, Baker Street Partners, Acme, Renewal by Andersen, and Power Home Remodeling.
