Join us for the 18th Annual Capitol Hill Holiday Tree Lighting! Our “Men in Blue” will serve hot chocolate and doughnuts while local musical groups perform. 

All festivities will be held at the tree known as "Sonny" in the SW Quadrant of Eastern Market Metro Plaza (Corner of 7th and D St SE). Members of the Didden family will flip the switch to illuminate the tree that was planted to honor the late George Didden III for his many contributions to the Capitol Hill community.
