Mile High Tree

Sculpture Park at Denver Performing Arts Complex

11/30/2019 - 01/31/2020 5:00 PM

Denver’s holiday season just got bigger and brighter with the spectacular new Mile High Tree! Step inside this brilliantly lit, 110-foot-tall immersive art installation. It will be open all season long in Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex (DPAC) – free every evening from 5-10:30 p.m.

Create a new family tradition and join in the free nightly festivities at Denver’s newest holiday attraction, including a dazzling lights and music show every 30 minutes throughout the evening. At 39-feet in diameter, the conical structure can host up to 140 guests at a time for an immersive viewing experience within the tree itself. The tree will be surrounded by dazzling, oversized holiday ornaments – a perfect selfie spot – as well as vendors selling holiday treats and drinks.

The Mile High Tree is the largest installation of its kind in North America. The tree was created by ILMEX Illumination, a globally renowned decorative lighting production company in Spain. Madrid-based Brut Deluxe handled the lighting design using pixel-mapping technology.

The Mile High Tree will be visible from Speer Boulevard and from DPAC’s Garner Galleria Theatre entrance. All of the events at the Mile High Tree ARE FREE. There will be areas to purchase both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as holiday treats.
