The Spartan family will once again fill the streets of downtown Greensboro at the 2022 Festival of Lights, bringing art and music that will get everyone in the holiday spirit on Friday, December 2.
The Festival of Lights has been a holiday tradition in Greensboro for over 35 years. It includes popular holiday fare such as a tree lighting, carolers, toasted marshmallows, and an opportunity to begin your holiday shopping in our local downtown merchants.
The festivities will be found in Center City Park and along Elm Street. The live entertainment begins around 5:30 p.m. while the tree lighting will be held shortly before 7 p.m. The UNCG Horn Choir and the UNCG Chariots will perform, and you can visit the Greensboro Project Space to browse the UNCG Student Art Market for original gift items.
Don’t miss the circus performers and an eight-foot-tall LED robot that will promote UNCG’s Esports programs.
