Dixon: US Capitol Tree Tour Event

Every year, the USDA Forest Service selects one of its 154 national forests to provide a tree
to appear on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol building for the holiday season. The Six Rivers
National Forest in partnership with nonprofit partner Choose Outdoors
will bring this special gift from California to Washington, D.C. for the 2021 holiday season.

Thanks to a collaboration with the City of Dixon, Dixon Chamber of Commerce, and the Dixon
May Fair, the Tree will make a special appearance in Dixon on Tuesday, November 2 from 3 pm
until 6 pm at the Dixon May Fair. Admission and parking are free.
Under the theme, Six Rivers, Many Peoples, One Tree, the 84’ tall White Fir will be harvested on
the Six Rivers National Forest on Oct. 25 and prepared for the 3,300-mile expedition. The
journey will include a series of 25 outdoor community celebrations before being delivered to
the U.S. Capitol on Nov. 19. The Tree will then be decorated with handmade ornaments and
tree skirts specially created by Californians and lit in early December.

“The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree campaign exists to connect people from across California and
throughout the country to the outdoors and their public lands,” said Ted McArthur, forest
supervisor for the Six Rivers National Forest. “We are honored to represent California national
forests and bring the joy of the People’s Tree on its journey to Washington, D.C.”
Festivities during the tree’s visit to Dixon on November  2 will include remarks by public
officials, visits with Santa,  free refreshments and more. Additional activities will be announced
closer to the event date. All activities are open to the public and free for all to enjoy while
following local health guidelines.

“The Dixon May Fair Board of Directors and staff are proud to be a part of this important visit,”
said Patricia Conklin, Chief Executive Officer of the Dixon May Fair.   “We look forward to
celebrating the ‘Peoples Tree’ and the start of the holiday season with the community on
November 2.”
