Jerry Moss Plaza
Bring your friends and the whole family to the L.A. County Tree Lighting Ceremony on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center! From decking our halls and theatres to holiday art making after gathering around a magnificent Christmas tree dressed in its holiday finest, this wonderful event—emceed this year by Telemundo 52 weather anchor Marcos Mora—offers a sensational start to a season of celebration in Downtown Los Angeles.
Join us for all the festivities!
Marketplace, Art Activities, Music & Food
- Shop at the marketplace featuring L.A. artists and vendors: Anabella’s Candles, David Martinez Art, Guez Art, Oli Artesana and Spoon Fed Pets. Marketplace curated by the South Gate Museum and Art Gallery.
- Create your own print holiday card with Xitlalic Guijosa-Osuna of Tarjetitas con Amor or take a Holiday Mixtape Workshop with Melina Aguilar of Te Quiero Mosh.
- Enjoy winter songs from youth ensemble ADDERLEY Advanced Conservatory as well as festive music from the Valley Christian High School Handbell Choir. Then Mariachi Hecho en Mexico will usher us to that special tree-lighting moment and close out the evening.
- Cozy up with a cup of free hot chocolate and cookies, or explore other sweet and savory options from local food vendor Los Angelitos Bakery or The Mullin Wine Bar.
When we speak of our vision to deepen the cultural lives of all Angelenos, we turn to the work of TMC Arts. This team champions the diverse voices and communities of Los Angeles, fostering connection, creativity and enrichment. TMC Arts programs connect people, offering us the chance to get creative and to learn as we discover something new or enjoy something familiar. Many programs are free and low-cost; they take place outdoors on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center and in Grand Park, inside The Music Center's theatres and in schools and neighborhoods all across L.A. County.
