Winter Festival in WNY!

Guests are treated to nearly two miles of light displays featuring more than sixty displays!

Park the car and let the holiday magic begin… Stroll the illuminated street and explore each of the buildings for unique holiday activities, shows, and more. Grab a seat for the In Jest Comedy Variety Show or the Milk for Health Kids Game Show. Climb aboard the One Buffalo Express and take a short train ride around the Festival grounds. Kids can stop in to the TOPS Winterland Workshop to make a craft. This and more is included in your carload admission.

Providing some of the most beautiful holiday photo opportunities in the area, the Fairgrounds Festival of Lights invites visitors to wander through Christmas Tree Forest where nearly one hundred trees are illuminated in thousands of twinkling lights. 

The centerpiece of the Festival of Lights is the North Pole Experience. This ten thousand square foot walk through adventure leads guests through the North Pole and right to Santa’s front 


porch. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be greeting guests throughout the Festival as well as posing for photos, so do not forget your camera. 

New in 2015! Great Lakes International Ice Carving Competition.  11 International teams will carve more than 2 tons of ice to create incredible frozen masterpieces. Carving takes place November 27-29, but all final pieces will be on display for the duration of the Festival.
