13th Annual Tree Lighting Concert at Citadel Outlets - Let the Holidays Begin

The lighting of the World's Tallest Live Cut Christmas Tree can mean only one thing, that Citadel Outlets is officially kicking off the holiday season. On November 8th guests at Citadel Outlets will get to experience the much-anticipated 13th Annual Tree Lighting Concert.  Over 20 thousand attendees are expected to attend the lighting of the 115-foot tall Christmas tree and will get to also see the World's Largest Bow atop the Citadel wall while enjoying the free, outdoor concert headlined by country star Jana Kramer, The Voice's Christina Grimmie, YouTube sensation Cimorelli, pop boy band After Romeo and X Factor's Josh Levi.

World's Tallest Christmas Tree

"We could not be more pleased that this Annual Tree Lighting event has become such a holiday tradition in Los Angeles," said Traci Markel, Marketing Director at Citadel Outlets. "We hear stories of fans coming year after year to see the amazingly talented concert performers, take photos with the center's record-breaking decorations and enjoy holiday shopping at over 130 brand name stores."

Presented by AMP 97.1 and FOX 11, television personalities Tony McEwing and Maria Sansone and radio personality McCabe will host the night's events. Immediately following the concert performances, Tony & Maria will direct attention to center court where guests will be invited to participate in a countdown leading up to the lighting of the World's Tallest Live Cut Christmas Tree.

The Citadel Outlets' record-breaking tree is an impressive 115 feet tall and is sourced from the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. It spans 20 feet longer than an NBA basketball court and stands at twice the size of the famous Hollywood Sign. In addition, the center's Christmas tree is 40-feet taller than the Rockefeller Christmas Tree in New York City. In addition to hosting the World's Tallest Live Cut Christmas Tree, Citadel Outlets is also home to the World's Largest Bow.  Sitting atop the iconic Citadel wall overlooking the 5 Freeway, the World's Largest Bow is 36 feet wide by 21 feet tall with 18 loops and two 72-feet long tails that drape down the front of the building. Over 4,000 cans of red paint and primer and one half-ton of glitter were used to cover the striking accouterment.
