It may not be the same as the lighting of the Christmas tree in New York, but it should still be a great event.  The annual lighting of the Christmas tree at the Dubuque Carnegie-Stour Public Library.


The Library’s tree lighting ceremony for its 18-foot Christmas tree decorated in full Victorian splendor is this Saturday, December 3rd from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.   The Dubuque Senior High School Madrigal Performers will provide holiday music around the tree including sing-alongs.  Children can enter a drawing to light the tree and holiday refreshments will be provided.

This family-friendly event is this Saturday, December 3rd from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Carnegie-Stout Public Library on Locust Street in downtown Dubuque.  Just head straight to the 2nd Floor Rotunda and Gallery Area

The mission of the Carnegie-Stout Public Library is to improve the quality of life by providing resources for individual enjoyment, enlightenment, and knowledge, and that enhance the literacy of youth. Learn more at
