Experience the enchantment of Auburn University's annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony on Samford Lawn. Indulge in hot cocoa, cookies, and latkes as the festive spirit builds towards the 5:00 p.m. on-stage program.  Open to the entire community, the celebration features choral performances, special guests, and the illumination of the Menorah and Christmas Tree.  Join us for a joyous kickoff to the holiday season!

Family holiday activities will be from 4-5 p.m. From 5-6 p.m., there will be performances by local choirs and student performers. After the tree and Menorah are lit, families are welcome to stay and take pictures, eat some snacks, and have a merry time!
