About the event

In one of Washington’s most popular holiday traditions, which began in 1997, Norway will present a Christmas tree to the people of Washington, D.C., in recognition of the strong friendship between Norway and the United States, and in gratitude for America’s assistance during and after World War II. The theme for this year’s tree is the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The 2019 Norwegian Christmas Tree Lighting is made possible by Equinor, Kongsberg Gruppen, Nammo Inc., Innovation Norway, Insitu Inc., BAO Systems, FLIR, and Mars Arts D.C., a partnership of Mars, Incorporated and Washington Performing Arts, with support from Jacqueline Badger Mars.
