  Rosslyn Events


Join us as we kick off the holiday season in Rosslyn with our annual tree lighting!

We're coming to you live from Central Place Plaza to kick off the holidays in Rosslyn with music, prizes and a whole lot of festive fun! Beginning at 5 p.m. on December 9, join us for performances by the H-B Woodlawn Secondary School choir and Mariachi Aguila DC, raffle prizes throughout the night and more!

WJLA will then lead the countdown to the neighborhood tree lighting, live from the Plaza! Watch it with us in-person or tune-in from home. We'll also be livestreaming the event on our Facebook page (be sure to like our page now to receive a reminder when we go live!).

Open Road will also be there with an onsite beer, wine and spiked hot cider bar; crafting holiday drinks to get you in the spirit! Make sure to catch their cocktail demonstration, which will be broadcast live by WJLA!

While you're there, take a picture in Santa's chair (holiday card, anyone?), grab a drink, enjoy the music and soak up the holiday cheer. As a bonus, the View of DC will remain open until 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 9. Head up after the tree lighting for a spectacular, starlit view of Arlington and the nation's capital! (The entrance is right off of the Plaza!)

Following the tree lighting, join us for Rosslyn's Holiday Market on December 10 and 11! Learn more about the neighborhood festivities you can look forward to this year from our Rosslyn Cheer page.
