In everyone's mind, the sight of a majestic fir tree lit up with 1000 lights in a festive setting arouses strong emotions, guided by sweet childhood memories linked to the magic of Christmas. Traditionally celebrated in the heart of the Alpine village, this flagship event which gives rise to a magical spectacle marks the launch of the end-of-year festivities in Megève, as well as the opening of the winter season.

A magical spectacle

Combining the magic of Christmas with the magic of a sparkling spectacle, in Megève, the lighting of the tree is one of the most anticipated events of winter. Every year, on the first Saturday of December, this extraordinary evening officially announces the opening of the winter season.

Adorned with magnificent decorations, the “king of the forest” stands out with pride on the village square. Holidaymakers and Megèves meet up that evening to experience this unique moment together. Until the illumination in an explosion of golden and shimmering colors, the audience holds its breath...

As soon as the tree begins to shine in the night, making the eyes of adults and children shine, the party can begin with music. In a festive atmosphere, between rock'n'roll and rhythm & blues, this December night promises to be unforgettable!
