The city of Southfield will officially kickoff the holiday season with the annual Municipal Campus Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 3 at 6-9 p.m. on the front lawn of City Hall, 26000 Evergreen Road.

Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will arrive by antique fire truck to assist City officials in lighting up Southfield for the holiday season followed by visits with a live reindeer, ice carving demonstrations, and performances by the University High Dance Team and Impulse Dancers. Guests can shop at the Vendor Holiday Marketplace to purchase unique gifts for friends and family. There will also be holiday take home craft kits available for kids and light refreshments (including the return of our famous s’mores) as well as hot dogs and snacks available for purchase. Southfield Police Department, Southfield Fire Department and the Southfield Public Library will also all participate in this official holiday kickoff event.

Face masks and physical distancing will be required. This is an all outdoor event so please dress accordingly. Please note that Santa will not be available for visits this year; however, children are encouraged to bring a letter to leave in his special mailbox.
