Lighting of Wake Forest


Virtual Lighting of Wake ForestIn response to state restrictions on outdoor gatherings, the Board of Commissioners agreed recently to suspend through March 2021 all Town-sponsored events that draw large crowds. As a result, the Lighting of Wake Forest will join Friday Night on White, the Fireworks Spectacular and a host of other 2020 events impacted by COVID-19.

The community’s traditional holiday kick-off, which typically attracts thousands of people to downtown Wake Forest on the first Friday in December, will be offered this year as a virtual event on the evening of Friday, Dec. 4.  

Hosted by Santa Claus, our virtual event will feature a holiday message from the Wake Forest Board of Commissioners, along with Kids Say the Cutest Things about the Holidays, the Wake Forest Community Carolers and - of course - the lighting of the Town tree!

The program will be posted on this web page and on the Town's Facebook page.
