The Insider’s Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Party begins at 7pm until 9:30pm. Hors’d oeuvres and drinks are included. Since admission into the Rockefeller Center area is tightly controlled for the Christmas Tree lighting, we have made special arrangements to provide you with a letter of confirmation and instructions that must be shown in order to gain admittance.
Important Information for INSIDER'S functions: This exclusive event is limited to the first 300 reservations. NYCVP cannot guarantee unobstructed views of the tree lighting; views are "first-come, first-served". In order to provide maximum viewing space there is no table seating in the outdoor patio. It is the intention of NYCVP to provide a convivial atmosphere during this special event, including food, drinks, private restroom facilities, warmth and indoor protection from the weather, and admission into the Rockefeller Center area. Since streets are closed to traffic and pedestrian movement is limited by the NYPD and Rockefeller Center security teams, NYCVP will provide instructions for admission.
TICKET DELIVERY INFORMATION: Due to security issues with the massive number of people who try to get into the Rockefeller Center area to see the tree lighting, we have to abide by the regulations and procedures of Rockefeller Center security and the NYPD. This event is private but we have to wait until we are issued the proper credentials for our guests; therefore documents and tickets will not be sent to you until approximately 2 weeks prior to the event.
