51st Annual Ghirardelli Tree Lighting Ceremony

One of the best events all year for Kevin Toqe Music, this famous SF Christmas tree lighting ceremony happens the day after Thanksgiving. Kevin and band will be playing for the hour following the lighting on the main stage where you can find him singing a mix of Christmas carols and original artist songs. This has been the fourth year in a row Kevin has been asked to perform for this event, and this year will be even more special than the rest! Expect the plaza addition of holiday hot chocolate, Ghirardelli Square carolers, and other fun surprises. Also, expect the largest crowd of the year, so come early!

5:30pm - Tree Lighting Ceremony with Kevin Toqe Music quickly following

Most people find it much less stressful to come out to SF significantly earlier to enjoy the City so that they're not fighting for parking last minute (the garage can fill up quickly).
