The holiday season is upon us, and the Historic West End in Dallas is gearing up for a magical Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration on December 9, 2023. This free community event promises a day filled with festive activities, joyful music, and opportunities for giving back.

11am – 2pm

Join us for a heartwarming community activity as local businesses come together to decorate a stunning 9-foot pre-lit tree. All participating businesses will contribute ornaments to adorn the tree throughout the day. The atmosphere will be set with music on Wild Bill’s Western Store patio, providing a perfect backdrop for a great photo opportunity to share on social media.


Bring the family and capture the magic of the season with a free Santa selfie! Santa will be available for photos, spreading holiday cheer and creating lasting memories.



Support our community by bringing an unwrapped toy or canned good to receive a raffle ticket for entry for special giveaways from local businesses at 7:00 pm. All donations will go to Toys for Tots and Dallas College Food Bank. Let’s make this holiday season brighter for those in need!



Get ready to celebrate the sounds of the holidays with your favorite tunes with lively beats to keep the energy high and the festivities rolling.



The highlight of the evening will be the grand Tree Lighting Ceremony at 7:00 pm at Wild Bill’s Western Store patio. The charismatic West End President, Phil Honore, will MC the event, ensuring an entertaining and joyous experience for all. Don’t miss the excitement as we announce the raffle winners from the toy and canned food drive.
