Holiday Celebrations

San Francisco

The Macy’s Great Tree Lighting Ceremony in Union Square Park has been a tradition in the heart of the city since 1989.  Macy's gift to the city is a huge, magnificent tree adorned with thousands of energy-efficient twinkling lights and ornaments.  Join Macy's and the city in celebrating this special time of the year with live performances, outdoor ice skating, and the ultimate countdown with Santa himself.

Take your picture with Santa Claus in Macy's Santaland located in Macy's Union Square's Holiday Lane, and be sure to submit your letter to Santa in the big red letterbox to help raise a million dollars for Make-A-Wish®! Find the perfect souvenir or gift to bring home to your family and friends.
