General Info

Experience this event with the entire family and celebrate The Fairgrounds' 9th traditional holiday season of the amazing Festival of Lights opening on November 29, 2013. Located just 20 minutes south of Buffalo, NY in Hamburg.

Take pleasure in a leisurely drive through a nearly 2 mile spectacle of over a million dazzling animated colored lights filling a brilliant path of light displays including several brand new scenes to this year's show.

After your ride, there's even more fun and holiday excitement for the entire family. Be sure to have the children write a letter to Santa and mail it from our Post Office or hug one of our Holiday characters, both make for memorable photos.

In our charming barn, Santa presents his favorite reindeer sleigh team all ready to go! Every weekend, take pleasure in riding a carriage pulled by Santa's team of reindeer on limited dates, just like on that magical night. Warm up inside our buildings with some hot chocolate, coffee or food favorites. Ride the North Pole Express or any of the other timeless and ageless restored rides at Santa's Magical Midway. 

Milk for Health presents a new interactive Kids Game Show "Everyone's A Winner" hosted by Rob and Carol Allen" features a fun time with plenty of laughs. Of course, a holiday festival wouldn't be complete without the merriment of ole' Santa himself, whom you can find inside the NYS Police Building this year!

This one-of-a-kind WNY event has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families. This enchanting event runs for 16 days until December 29, 2013. Just one low price per carload. Don't forget your camera!
