Peace Tree Lighting

2021 Event Details

Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 6 p.m.

Brown County Courthouse

Join us as we light the evergreen tree outside the Brown County Courthouse! Gather to hear community leaders and children share their thoughts on peace, sing holiday music, and kick off the holiday season!

The Peace Tree Lighting is a longtime local tradition that began 53 years ago by People for People Green Bay in response to the Vietnam War and a need for peace. Today, area children gather, read essays on peace, and sing holiday music.
