2022 Carlsbad Village Holiday Tree


The Carlsbad Holiday Tree for 2022 is now in place. As always it’s at the entrance to the Village Faire shopping center in Carlsbad Village.

If you are in the area, don’t forget the 37th Annual Holiday Tree Lighting, is tomorrow, December 4th. The event begins at 2:00, with the arrival of Santa, his Elf, and Mrs. Claus on the Carlsbad Antique Fire Truck around 2:15. There are a number of holiday performances and the official lighting is at 4:30.


I typically wait to post a photo of the tree until after the lighting ceremony, which we usually attend. But family obligations take us to LA this Sunday and I won’t be back in time for the lighting festivities.

Carlsbad Village and the Village Faire are looking pretty festive as they do at this time of year. I’m looking forward to checking out the Village in the evening to see all the lights!


Happy Holidays from Carlsbad!

Hi Jeff - this is a big tree lighting weekend.  Ours is today but the Frosty Parade is cancelled because of the weather.

That's true here too, Grant Schneider  There is another tree lighting today in South Carlsbad at The Forum, and several other towns have them this weekend.

Sorry to hear about the parade!

Festive is the perfect word.  I do enjoy strolling the streets of a town that is lit up for the season.  Enjoy the weekend.  mdm

Hi Jeff... always a good looking tree in Carlsbad. A tree lighting is always fun to attend. I "grew up" on the lighting of the Rockefeller Center tree and then used to enjoy the lighting of the National Tree in Washington, DC when I was in college... but even the small city ceremonies are quite fun.

I don't think I have ever attended a lighting of a really big tree that I recall, but have seen them on TV Nina Hollander, Broker Some day, perhaps.

Jeff Dowler, CRS it's been many years since I attended, but the Rock Center tree lighting is a truly special experience.

Hi Jeff- Larry and I loved going to see the 100 ft Christmas Tree in Delray Beach. We'll probably see one of the trees near us this week.

Jeff Dowler, CRS

Sounds like great fun Kathy Streib and photo worthy!

Makes our tree sound puny...but it works for where it is!

Much like Buddy, the Elf, I love Christmas trees.  It would be really fun to be at the lighting event.  I hope you get to view it in all of its lighted glory soon.

We always enjoy the lighting event, but just seeing the tree at night, and all the other decorations and lights, puts me in the holiday mood Ray Henson

Good morning Jeff. Like your setting of priorities, family first. Never been to a tree lighting of a large tree, but, like you, have seen many on TV. Enjoy your day.

It will be! I'm sorry we will miss the actually lighting but we can always stop by to see the tree on the way home or later in the week in the evening. We have attended multiple times and it's always fun.

Good morning Jeff,

Love all the tree lighting ceremonies around the country. Each have their own flavor, big or small they are all moments to be cherished by the residents.

I'll have to stop back in the evening to grab a photo of the tree all lit up. I'm sorry we could not attend the lighting ceremony this year. But there's always next year!
