Tanglewood Park Festival of Lights - November 15, 2019 - January 1, 2020

Tanglewood Park Festival of Lights

Tanglewood Park's rolling countryside transforms every holiday season into a shimmering Winter Wonderland with more than a million twinkling lights aglow. Entering its 28th season, the Festival of Lights at Tanglewood Park is open nightly from 6-11 p.m. starting Nov. 15 - Jan. 1, 2020. 

Festival of Lights attendees enjoy listening to festive tunes on the interactive musical displays in which the music is original compositions from the UNC School of the Arts Music Technology students. There will be over 80 displays along the route! Also, to make the show more eco-friendly and brighter, majority of all displays will now feature the low-energy LED Lights.

The Holiday Gift Village, located halfway through the light show route, features locally crafted gifts, concessions, and visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus. Gift available at the barn include holiday crafts, wood workings, and other fine items made by over 70 local vendors. Photo opportunities with Santa and Mrs. Claus are available Nov. 15 - Dec. 23. Santa will be at the show until 10 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Friday and Saturday hours are from 5:45 p.m. until midnight. Visitors have the option of paying for tractor-pulled hayrides and horse-drawn carriage rides. Reservations are required and can be placed by calling Tanglewood Stables at (336) 766-9540.
