Our most salient holiday memories are solidified out in the crisp winter air.

Wandering amongst CityCenter’s many open concourses — dressed up in their festive finest — delivers just that. First, our iconic Palmer Alley comes decorated with bright, eye-catching snowflakes in a stunning installation called “Dream Closet.” From there, head a touch north to New York Avenue NW where you’ll witness our 75-foot holiday tree decked out with 150,000 lights and 4,500 ornaments. A new addition to the CityCenter property, the dazzling, larger-than-life Tiffany & Co. ornament is perfect for snapping a holiday pic. For even more festive fun, take in the sweet holiday sounds of Apollo Chamber Music in The Plaza and The Park Fridays and Saturdays from 5:00 – 7:00pm

during the first three weekends in December. Then, on Saturday, December 3, 10, and 17, experienced a whimsical Candy Land-themed candy cart by Sugar & Ice which will be parked in The Plaza where passers-by can pick up specially made treats from 12:00 – 4:00pm. All of CityCenter’s activities are complimentary, but we would love for our guests to help us raise $10,000 in support of the Children’s National Hospital (we’ll be matching up to $10,000!) Just a little something meaningful to sweep you up in the spirit of the season.
