Day-long festivities begin at 10 a.m. in the Plaza with caroling, live music, a gift-wrapping station and more! Liberty Plaza is located at 815 Main Street, Oregon City, OR 97045.

Downtown Oregon City Association (DOCA) is happy to partner with Downtown businesses to create a hometown holiday celebration that brings together community and helps raise funds for local non-profits.

Oregon City's annual Tree Lighting event brings approximately 1,500 folks to the city's historic downtown. The lighting ceremony kicks off at 4:30 pm in Liberty Plaza with a holiday sing-along led by the Oregon City High School Choir and visit from Santa. After the Tree Lighting, Santa visits a local business and is available for photo opportunities. Major Sponsor Guild Mortgage, and Supporting Sponsor Citizen Bank and Planet Fitness help to make the Tree Lighting possible this year.

DOCA is coordinating a "downtown unwrapped' holiday bingo card for the day. Participating businesses will be listed on the card and can sign off for their individual locations. Participants who complete the card can enter in a drawing for raffle prizes! Full details and a listing of happenings will be posted online on the DOCA website.
