Annual Tree Lighting

Family looking at treeEach year the Village of Clemmons hosts the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Join your neighbors for snowfall, music, cookies, and a visit from Santa. The community gathers for the ceremonial lighting of the tree. Each year, a family within the community is selected to light the tree.  

The Tree Lighting event, sponsored by Chick-fil-A of Clemmons will take place on the front lawn of Village Hall.

Tuesday, November 30th

6:30 PM at Village Hall

RAIN DATE: December 2nd

Snow will begin to fall at 6pm as On Target DJ and the West Forsyth Drumline plays us into the holiday season!

Mayor remarks will begin at 6:30 PM welcoming Mya Castillo-Garcia and her family to light the 2021 tree.  We are honored to announce the Castillo-Garcia family will be lighting the tree. In March 2019, Mya (one of five children) was diagnosed with leukemia and began her battle. She had many long stays between Brenner's and Duke hospital that resulted in a stem cell transplant. She continues to fight her battle but is making improvements each day. All of the children have been students at Southwest Elementary School. During those long hospital stays, Southwest staff became family helping when possible. Southwest PTA will host a table at the event to collect any gift cards or cash donations to go directly to the family.

Thank you Clemmons United Methodist Church for providing overflow parking for the event. Stop by their hospitality table for hot chocolate.

***Parking available across from Village Hall at Clemmons United Methodist Church***

Chick-fil-A Clemmons will be on site selling sandwiches, chips and waters. $1 from each sandwich sold goes directly to the family.
