Provincetown Lobster Pot Tree Lighting


Provincetown Nov Calendar

Provincetown Lobster Pot Tree Lighting

This year the Lobster Pot Tree is lit for all to enjoy!  The Official Lighting event is cancelled for 2020, but the traps are there to bring joy and highlight the hardworking Lobstermen as it has for 16 years.

The Lighting of the Lobster Pot Tree, a Provincetown tradition that rings in the holiday season. Started in 2004 by artist Julian Popko who wanted to design a holiday celebration that recognized the hard-working local lobstermen, the “tree” is made of real lobster traps, and has become a beloved tradition.
