The Beach Boys, Wynonna, and three-time Emmy Award winners, The Texas Tenors will perform at the 2017 National Christmas Tree Lighting taking place November 30 on the Ellipse at President’s Park, home to the White House.

Whether people attend in person or watch on Hallmark Channel on December 4, they’ll also enjoy performances by Craig Campbell, Us The Duo, Boys II Bow Ties, Mannheim Steamroller, and the U.S. Navy Band led by Emmy nominated music director Steve Gibson. Additional entertainers and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.

Co-presented by the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, this beloved American tradition is celebrating its 95th year. Through a partnership with the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, Hallmark Channel will exclusively broadcast the National Christmas Tree Lighting on December 4.

A lovely melding of music, outdoor performance, and holiday cheer, the National Christmas Tree Lighting is a great example of the unique ways that people can experience national parks and #FindYourPark/ #EncuentraTuParque.
