4th Annual Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting Celebration

The Central Astoria Local Development Coalition announced that it will be hosting its 4th Annual Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting Celebration in December. This beloved annual event has become a tradition that everyone in the Astoria community looks forward to.

Central Astoria LDC’s 4th Annual Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting Celebration will be held on Saturday, December 3rd, from 2 pm to 5 pm at the Astoria Park Great Lawn on 19th Street and 23rd Avenue. The event is free to the public, and will include train rides, face painting, various holiday performances, cotton candy, and the highly anticipated tree lighting at 5 pm as the grand finale to the event. The event celebrates the diverse community of Astoria and the joyous December holidays of Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa.

Marie Torniali, Executive Director of Central Astoria LDC, said “Central Astoria’s Holiday Festival brings together the families of Astoria for a fun-filled and happy event ending with the lighting of the community tree symbolizing the unity and fellowship that exists in this great community where we live.”

This event is made possible, in part, by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, Council Member Costa Constantinides, and the generosity of corporate sponsor, Thomas M. Quinn & Sons.
