14th Annual Capitol Hill Holiday Tree Lighting

The Hill is Alive for the Holidays!

The 14th Annual Tree Lighting went virtual in 2020!

Keeping everyone's health and safety in mind during the unprecedented time, Capitol Hill BID captured the Tree Lighting on video without an audience for the community to enjoy online.

The public is encouraged come view the holiday decorations in the newly renovated Parcel One of Eastern Market Metro Plaza (Pennsylvania Ave SE and 8th St SE) safely and socially distanced on their own time.

Thank you to Kathy Didden and her family who have lit the tree every year since 2007 in honor of late BID Founder George Didden.
