The Great Tree at Macy's Lighting Ceremony is an Atlanta tradition that dates back to 1947. As a longtime tradition of the Rich Department store, the lighting of the massive Christmas tree on Thanksgiving night continues atop Macy's at Lenox Square Mall in Buckhead, Atlanta. The event draws over 50,000 people annually, and features live entertainment as well as the amazing tree lighting. Bring the family and celebrate the 60th Lighting of Macy's Department Store's Great Tree. Pre-show festivities begin at 6:15 p.m.
The stars will shine bright this year as Macy’s welcomes country music superstars Big and Rich, Atlanta’s own multi-Grammy winners Take 6 and Entertainment Tonight’s Jann Carl serving as the evening’s host.

The tree itself is a spectacular site, usually measuring over 65ft in height and decorated with thousands of lights, huge football-sized decorations and ornaments, as well as stunning strobe light displays. The hour-long lighting ceremony is a popular, family-friendly event that takes place on Thanksgiving night.

Over the years this holiday event has captured the cover of Time magazine, been included in national television specials like HGTV’s “Christmas Across America”, and received international exposure on CNN. Millions of viewers across the United States have enjoyed this Atlanta holiday tradition as a result of its national syndication.

Many top name performers have participated over the years; they include: Kenny Rogers, Trisha Yearwood, Usher, Lee Ann Rimes, Alicia Keyes, Edwin McCain, John Berry, CeCe Winans, Peabo Bryson, Lee Ann Womack, Hootie and the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker, The Radio City Rockettes, JoDee Messina, Third Day, and Collective Soul.
