Rockefeller Center Tree Arrival 2019
Children of all ages are invited to be among the first to catch a glimpse of the 2019 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and enjoy free, family-friendly activities and performances
Among the day’s free offerings on the Concourse Level of Rockefeller Center are:
- Live performances by Rock and Roll Playhouse where children can dance, move, play, and sing-along to the music of some of the most iconic musicians in rock history.
- Art Sundae with Angelica Hicks: As part of the year-long Art in Focus program presented by Rockefeller Center in partnership with Art Production Fund, London- and New York-based artist Angelica Hicks leads an illustration workshop for children of all ages.
- Christmas tree-themed face painting and balloon art giveaways.
Kids who are early risers and have extra holiday spirit are welcome to watch the tree be driven onto Rockefeller Plaza on a 115-foot-long trailer and hoisted into position by a massive crane from approximately 8:30am – 11am. Kids can take their photo in front of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and receive a free printout and digital copy.
Plus: free packets of Norway Spruce tree seeds will be handed out on-site, so children can plant their own trees at home and maybe one day be the proud donor of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree!
