Set Christmas alight

The Big Switch On

Join us this holiday season as we turn on 275,000 glittering lights at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet. On November 14, gather around with friends and family to countdown the official tree lighting ceremony. Delight in the magic of the holidays in our winter wonderland alight with entertainment for all, from Christmas caroling to writing your wish list to Saint Nick, you’re guaranteed to leave with that warm and fuzzy feeling, as well as stylish designer gifts for everyone on your list - up to 70% less. It’s the perfect time to get in the festive spirit and enjoy an evening like no other.



Gather round our dazzling 52 foot Christmas tree and watch Santa light up the night! Our annual switch on event is back and bigger than ever! Spread Christmas cheer for all to hear as our festivities begin at 5pm. Enjoy performances by the Showstoppers and the CCIM Choir while you await the arrival of Ol' Saint Nick. You won't want to miss the kick off to Christmas.

Capture the moment that will last a lifetime. Enjoy one complimentary photo with the big man himself! Visit Santa under our outdoor Gazebo by The Gap store and tell him what you really want for Christmas this year. Photos with Santa will be available for 1 hour after the big switch on.

Can't stay for a photo? Send your wish list to the North Pole at our Letters to Santa Station.
