Summerville Tree Lighting and Christmas Celebration

December 01, 2020
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Hutchinson Square
Hutchinson Square, Summerville SC 29483
We invite you to join us for the 2020 Old Time Summerville Christmas Celebration event on Tuesday, December 1 from 5:30 – 8 p.m. This event will be a modified version of the Town’s traditional tree lighting ceremony. The event will follow strict social distancing guidelines set by the South Carolina Department of Commerce. In an effort to provide a safe event that does not promote gathering we will be eliminating the ceremony and countdown of the tree lighting. This year the tree will be lit prior to the event starting. Attendees will be able to stop by anytime during the event to see the lights, enjoy the tree, and take pictures!
The South Carolina Department of Commerce requires attendees over the age of 3 to wear masks at the event and practice social distancing.
