The New York State Office of General Services (OGS) invites you to join in the fun at the annual SEFCU Holiday Tree Lighting and Fireworks Festival at the Empire State Plaza.  

Each year, OGS receives hundreds of offers for tree donations and visits many with potential before choosing two perfect New York State trees.  Each tree is decorated with over 2,000 energy-efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs) scheduled to be illuminated at this heartwarming family event.  

The Plaza becomes a winter playground for the whole family with live music, holiday displays and activities, a holiday marketplace, visits with Santa and a fantastic fireworks display. The plaza also hosts the New York State Museum Chocolate Expo on the same day – making it a perfect destination day at the Plaza!
