stamford downtown, holiday lights


Stamford Downtown has become a destination point for children and adults alike when it comes to our Holiday lighting display! Christmas Lighting Company, Inc. installs and maintains the display that is made possible by the Stamford Downtown Special Services District. Our display began to reach new levels when Christmas Lighting Company began painstakingly wrapping all of our trees branches individually with mini lights. Christmas Lighting Company, Inc. even brightened our display by converting all of our lights to energy conserving LED lights in 2017 when they took over our Holiday Lighting project. Not only did the switch to LED brighten our display, but due to the energy savings effect, we are now able to extend our Holiday season all the way into March!

Boasting over 300,000 miniature lights wrapped in trees throughout downtown Stamford, you surely will not be disappointed during your visit!

Our downtown display begins with Bedford and Atlantic streets where we have over 80 trees awash in lights. This part of our display contains over 130,000 individual warm white mini lights wrapped on individual tree branches giving the downtown area a display worth making a trip to see by itself. Fortunately for our visitors, this is just the beginning of our display.

You will quickly be drawn to the Oak tree at the entrance of Ferguson Library. This tree has over 12,000 miniature lights wrapped on its branches and adds a tremendous splash of color in the center of Stamford. The “Ferguson Library Tree” was quickly added to our original display in 2017 once we realized how wonderful the rest of the area looked with the new LED mini lights that were installed.

Over 25 trees on Summer Street have their branches wrapped and are lit with the same warm white LED lights as Bedford and Atlantic streets. Almost 50,000 mini lights adorn the trees along Summer St, and are well worth a trip to see these lights!

Once you arrive in the downtown area and have taken a peak at our street trees, you will want to check out the lights in our 3 parks.

Starting with Kiwanis Park, this small park boasts a striking display with cool white mini lights, dripping lights both in the trees, and on the adjacent building walls. Rounding out the Kiwanis Park display are festive ornaments hanging in the trees.

Our next park is Latham Park, this open space park boasts the same cool white mini lights wrapped in the tree branches along with the dripping lights. This park however, has the added bonus of our Christmas Tree that has over 10,000 mini lights displayed along with strobe lights that give an extra “wow” factor. The strobe lights are lit for 3 minutes approximately every 15 minutes, if you don’t see them, wait a minute and you will not be disappointed!

Finally, but most definitely, not last, is Columbus Park. Columbus Park contains what most of our visitors consider our biggest and brightest part of our entire Downtown Display. Columbus Park boasts our biggest Oak tree in Stamford and what many have called a “work of art”, “beautiful” and “amazing” among other superlatives. These compliments can only begin to describe a tree that takes Christmas Lighting Company, Inc. almost a week to install. This masterpiece features over 80,000 multi-color mini lights wrapped on each branch all the way to every tip of the tree. This tree is wrapped in stunning multi-color LED lights and framed in warm white lights by the smaller street trees on the edge of the park making this display a photo worthy stop while viewing the lights in Stamford. The Columbus park tree will wow and put a smile on the face of even the biggest Grinch in town.

Stamford Downtown Special Services District and Christmas Lighting Company, Inc. invite you to come view our display every season from the Middle of November until the Middle of March! Hopefully, you will want to stay and walk around to take in the entire display while visiting our shops and restaurants throughout our great City.
