No tree lighting can compare to the all-star line-up for the National Christmas Tree Lighting in Washington, D.C. They’ve got all corners covered with performances from mega-stars Sheryl Crow and Jordin Sparks, folk-pop songwriter Ray Lomantagne, jazz pianist Brad Mehldau, and even International Irish phenomenon Celtic Women at the event.

Of course, the main stars are the First Family themselves where Obama will give one of his soon-to-be famous speeches and the entire family will help light the energy-efficient national tree. This is a highly-anticipated event, so tickets are a must.

If you can’t make it for the big day, there will be free performances throughout the holiday season until the New Year.
