Tree Lighting for Madison Station Polar Express Christmas on Main

December 2, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Please join the City of Madison and the Madison Station Historic Preservation Society as they kick off the 2021 Holiday Season. Your organization is invited to be a part of the 8th Annual Madison Station Polar Express Christmas on Main.

Trees will be displayed along Main Street in beautiful, historic Downtown Madison. Whether using the tree to express your own creativity or to promote a business, it is a wonderful way to add charm to the holiday! The official lighting of all trees will take place on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at 6:00pm accompanied by music provided by the Madison Community Orchestra and the Madison Public Library’s reading of The Polar Express. The Madison Rotary Club will serve hot cocoa & cookies too!

Christmas trees will be lit every evening and displayed from Thursday, December 2, 2021 to Monday, January 3, 2022.

Christmas Kicks Off in Madison!

In addition to the tree lighting, be sure to visit downtown Madison merchants for their inaugural Wassail Fest! And be sure to drive down Christmas Card Lane on Church Street to see the giant Christmas cards created by local artists. Come back for the Madison Christmas Parade on December 11th at 5:00 PM, and for Christmas Capers and a Movie in the park on December 12th!
