Upper MArket Street  Tree Lighting

Proudly sponsored by PG&E and local merchants

After a very popular and successful three years, CASTRO MERCHANTS is proud that we will again LIGHT THE SIDEWALK STREET TREES in front of participating businesses, along both sides of Upper Market between Castro and Dolores Streets. 

The goal is to make this key retail strip stand out to pedestrians, passing motorists, and Muni’s F-Line Streetcar riders alike – by enhancing a “warm village atmosphere” after dark during the Holiday shopping season.

We invite you to join us, to further strengthen the attraction from both sides of the street

All Market Street Sidewalk Tree Light Sponsors also are listed on the Donor Banner.

If you can't sponsor a lighted sidewalk street tree, you are invited to consider other sponsorship of the CASTRO MERCHANTS 2018 Holiday Promotion, starting at $200 for a listing on the Holiday Donor Banner. See column to the left about the Donor Banner.

Please make sure you select the correct tree lighting option, there are two different options depending if you are a current CASTRO MERCHANT Member or currently a Non-Member. 

To sponsor the lighting of the tree(s) in front of YOUR business, we must have your confirmation and payment ASAP, and no later than 5PM on Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018.
