Peace Tree Ceremony
Join us for the Annual Peace Tree Ceremony at 6 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 20th at the Brown County Courthouse. A brief ceremony inside the courthouse will be led with comments by City of Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt and Brown County Executive Troy Streckenbach followed by the tree lighting outside near Jefferson Street.
The Peace Tree Lighting is a longtime tradition started by the Green Bay Chapter of People to People in response to the Vietnam War and a need for peace. Today, area children gather and read essays on peace, sing holiday music and come together to kick off the holiday season in Downtown Green Bay.
