[ARCHIVED] Lighting of the Old Oak Tree Set for Dec 3

Lighting of the Old Oak Tree

Downtown streets to close for annual holiday tradition


Downtown streets will be closed November 29, 2019 as the Town of Danville continues the tradition of the Lighting of the Old Oak Tree.  This annual event, taking place rain or shine, is scheduled from 5:15 – 8:00 p.m. and brings thousands of people into Town from all over northern California. Street closures will run from 1:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.  Motorists are asked to use caution and expect delays.


The Lighting of the Old Oak Tree is a perfect way to spend the day after Thanksgiving.  Leading up to the lighting, the San Ramon Valley High School Chorus and other groups will perform near the reviewing stand on Diablo Rd.  At approximately 6:15 p.m., local officials will address the crowd, followed by the introduction of Father Christmas and the Snow Angel. The pair will lead the crowd in a countdown as they sprinkle magic dust and the oak tree will spring to light.


All throughout the event, local merchants will be open, with many serving treats to those in attendance. All are welcome to join this special tradition and to stay downtown to enjoy the evening and visit our local shops.


For event information, go to www.danvilleareachamber.com or contact the Chamber of Commerce at (925) 837-4400.  For street closure information, contact Community Events Coordinator, Lianna Adauto, at (925) 314-3309 or ladauto@danville.ca.gov.
