Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller
Wednesday, November 29, 2023
Beginning at 8:00 pm and televised live on NBC (local TV channel 4)
Hosted by Kelly Clarkson
Rockefeller Center between 49th and 50th Streets by the Rink behind 30 Rock.
Expected performers include the following: Chloe Bailey, Adam Blackstone, Cher, David Foster, Liz Gillies, Darlene Love, Seth MacFarlane, Barry Manilow, Katharine McPhee, Keke Palmer, Carly Pearce, Manuel Turizo, and more.
Now, should you consider actually showing up for the event keep in mind the huge crowds that also looking to do the same. Also, although there some live performances (others are previously taped), not a single one will be visible with the naked eye except through a nearby screen at (a) select area(s). Basically, as with New Year’s at Times Square, you’re showing up for the countdown and even then, not everybody will have a direct view of the tree since plenty folks will find themselves on the side streets. At least that’s been the case in years past.
Have a look at the following photo gallery of trees from years past:
