Hosted by the Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation and the Smithfield Parks & Recreation Department, the Smithfield Christmas Tree Lighting, always held on the first Thursday in December, is when our Town lights up for the holidays!

The Tree Lighting begins with Santa Claus and the Mayor leading a countdown and flipping the switch to light our tree.  There are performances from local choruses, bands, and dance groups, fun games and activities provided by local organizations and businesses, and the Candy Cane Lane Dessert Food Truck Rodeo.  This event offers something for the entire family to get in the holiday spirit!
