Tanglewood Festival of Lights

Tanglewood Park presents:
"Festival of Lights"

Friday, November 17th - January 1st
Everyday @ 6:00pm - 11:00pm - 
with the exception of Sunday, Dec. 31,
when the show will close at 10:00PM.

Tanglewood Park's rolling countryside will be transformed into a winter wonderland of giant, twinkling snowflakes and whimsical scenes!

Get into the holiday spirit at Tanglewood Park's Festival of Lights featuring more than a million twinkling lights, interactive musical displays showcasing original compositions from UNC School of the Arts music technology students, and photo opportunities with Santa and Mrs. Clause.

Entering our 26th season, Tanglewood's Festival of Lights continues to be one of the largest and most spectacular light shows in the entire Southeast. Each year we make our show better and brighter with brand-new and improved light displays, a wide variety of vendors at Holiday gift Village, and even Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus themselves! We are so excited for you to join us this year in celebration of our favorite season!

Thursdays-Sundays are very popular nights at Festival of Lights! During these nights, long lines and wait times should be expected. Saturday nights are especially busy and wait times can exceed 4 hours. We strongly suggest visiting the show Mondays-Wednesdays to avoid extended wait times. Also, the week before Christmas is extremely busy each night with long wait times guaranteed. Thank you!
