The Mile High Tree
The tallest pixel LED technology tree in the country is coming to Denver, just in time for the holidays
A new holiday attraction in Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex will feature dynamic light shows on the tallest pixel LED technology tree in the country.
The “Mile High Tree,” a seven-story tall, 39-foot diameter conical structure is 10 feet higher than the tallest Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in history. Beginning on November 30, the tree will feature nightly free public light shows choreographed to multi-cultural holiday music and will accommodate up to 140 guests at a time for an immersive interior viewing experience within the tree.
“The Mile High Tree will be the tallest art installation in the history of our city as well as a perfect community centerpiece for bringing people of all cultures together for seasonal celebrations,” said Richard Scharf, president and CEO of VISIT DENVER. “And, as the newest iconic attraction on the Denver skyline this holiday season, we couldn’t think of a more perfect focal point for our regional holiday marketing campaign.”
Visible from Speer Boulevard and from the DPAC Galleria entrance, the tree will tower above a brand new holiday attraction throughout Sculpture Park offering lighting displays, festive entertainment, holiday treats and libations beginning with an official tree lighting ceremony November 30 and running through January 31.
Entry to the Mile High Tree will be free to the public, and a full list of scheduled light and music shows, activities and performances can be found at MileHighHolidays.com. The tree will be open from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. nightly through December 31 with new hours for January to be announced at a later date.
Created by Spain-based ILMEX Illumination, part of Ximenez Group, a world-leading firm in artistic and decorative lighting, the tree will present a series of dynamic, pre-programmed lighting and music experiences every 30 minutes throughout the evening using pixel mapping technology through 60,000 LED lights.
