Downtown Denver’s Sculpture Park is about to become home to the tallest digital Christmas tree in the country. Visit Denver and other community partners have come together to create a new holiday attraction, the Mile High Tree, in Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex that’s sure to become a tradition for locals.
The seven-story tall, 39-foot diameter conical structure will feature lighting and music experiences every evening from November 30 through January 31. Mile High Tree is 10 feet higher than the tallest Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in history.
Beginning on November 30, the tree will feature nightly FREE public light shows choreographed to multi-cultural holiday music and will accommodate up to 140 guests at a time for an immersive interior viewing experience within the tree.
Yes, you can actually go inside the tree! The shows run every 30 minutes throughout the evening using pixel mapping technology through 60,000 LED lights.
Visible from Speer Boulevard and the DPAC Galleria entrance, the tree will tower above a brand new holiday attraction throughout Sculpture Park offering lighting displays, festive entertainment, holiday treats and drinks. Entry to the Mile High Tree is FREE.
The tree will be open from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. November 30 through January 1 and feature the classic songs of Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and other holiday celebrations, all choreographed to a dazzling display of the tree’s digital lights. Between programs, enjoy recorded performances by the Colorado Symphony.
From January 2 to 31, 2020, the lights and music show will run from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and feature homegrown Denver and Colorado musicians as well as music inspired by the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo.
