The National Christmas Tree will be visiting Sonora at The Mother Lode Fairground on November 3rd! Each year, a different national forest provides a tree to light up the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol building for the holiday season. The Six Rivers National Forest in partnership with nonprofit partner Choose Outdoors will bring this special gift from the North Coast to Washington, D.C. for the 2021 holiday season with a series of special events in communities along the way.
Festivities will be hosted by local communities at parks and plazas, schools, memorials and monuments, stadiums, main streets and even a parade. Well-wishers will have a chance to sign the banners on the sides of the truck, learn more about the Six Rivers National Forest, purchase U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree merchandise and more. Festivities are free and open to the public for all to enjoy.
