The 29th annual Festival of Lights at Tanglewood Park opens Friday, Nov. 13, and runs through Friday, Jan. 1, 2021. The show’s operating hours are 6-11 p.m. nightly. Forsyth County Parks and Recreation is excited to have Lowes Foods returning as the title sponsor for the 2020-2021 season.

The Festival of Lights continues to freshen up displays throughout the show. Festival of Lights patrons can also enjoy original compositions from the UNC School of the Arts Music Technology students showcased through our interactive musical displays. Visitors are encouraged tune their radios to 99.5 WMAG through Dec. 25 to hear holiday music as they drive through Festival of Lights.

For the most enjoyable experience, visit Festival of Lights Monday-Thursday evenings early in the season. Friday-Sunday evenings as well as the days just before Christmas are very busy and extremely long wait times should be expected.

The Gift Village will be closed this season due to COVID-19.
