Over 18,000 LED bulbs will light up the World’s Tallest Live-Cut Tree (110 ft.) on Saturday, Nov. 10 during the grand finale of Citadel Outlet’s 17th Annual Tree Lighting Concert. The free concert is a family-friendly holiday tradition and will include a mix of original pop songs and holiday favorites.

This year’s concert will run from 4:30PM-7:30PM and kick off with a high-energy performance by John Lindahl, followed by a soulful set from Caleb Lee Hutchinson. Caleb will take the stage with Maddie for a few duet songs during her headline performance. At the end of the night, Santa Claus will join the performers on stage for the tree lighting and carols by world-acclaimed music and performing arts ensemble, The All-American Boys Chorus. The 30-person chorus will treat the crowd to classic holiday favorites (sing-a-longs encouraged). Attendees are asked to bring new, unwrapped toys to be donated to CHiPs For Kids, a California Highway Patrol program that supplies local non-profit organizations with toys during the holiday season.

Each year, dreams are made and soon-to-be international pop stars are discovered on the Citadel Outlets stage. The annual event serves as a first-look opportunity for thousands of L.A. residents and eager holiday shoppers to get up close and personal with performers that will soon be played on pop charts and top countdowns around the world. Previous headline performers include Forever In Your Mind (2017), Olivia Holt (2016), Sabrina Carpenter & Laura Marano (2015), Christina Grimmie (2014), Jesse McCartney (2013), Ariana Grande (2012), Big Time Rush (2010), Justin Bieber (2009), Ashley Tisdale (2009), Demi Lovato (2008) and more.
