Pinewood Performing Arts have partnered with the Nebraska State Capitol Staff to plan the annual Nebraska State Tree Lighting and Carol Sing since 1948. We conclude the ceremony, with the singing of Carols as the kids in the audience help the Governor light the State Christmas Tree.
The ceremony is usually held in the Capitol Rotunda on the first Sunday of December with the musical prelude beginning at 1:30 pm. There is also musical entertainment provided by local school groups and/or adult chamber choirs and a holiday message from Governor Pete Ricketts and others. 



The ceremony is broadcast on KFOR FM 103.3/1240 AM in Lincoln and statewide at



Please enter the Capitol Building through the South Entrance (H Street). This fun event is a Nebraska tradition, and is free to the public!
We look forward to seeing you on December 15, 2020, as we welcome the holiday season!
