Lit-up holiday tree in Pioneer Courthouse Square

Get in the holiday spirit and leave the driving to us this holiday season as you head to tree lighting events. There are seven tree lighting events in the greater Portland area that are accessible by bus or MAX.

Friday, November 23

Are you headed to the Portland tree lighting ceremony? Please note that the following three MAX stations will be closed 4-7 p.m. due to the large crowd expected at the square: Pioneer Courthouse Square North MAX Station, Pioneer Courthouse Square South MAX Station, and Pioneer Courthouse/SW 6th Ave Station. Get off the MAX a stop before or after these platforms to reach the square. And please remember: the Free Rail Zone in Downtown Portland was eliminated in September, so you’ll need to have a valid fare to ride MAX.
