Join EVIMA and friends for the 27th annual East Village Tree Lighting Ceremony! Enjoy cozy warm drinks while kicking off the holiday season with neighbors!
The humble evergreen was planted in 1992 in the memory of Glenn Barnett and other neighbors who have died of AIDS. Glenn Barnett was an East Village local and a fierce advocate for the park’s value to the community. Over the years, this event has turned into a beloved tradition. The evening will include carolers, refreshments, official tree lighting and raffle giveaways.
Assemble around the center grass of Tompkins Square Park at 4pm for all the festivities.
When the event concludes, join us for the after party at Lucky, 168 Avenue B!
