General Info

Event Overview:

Experience this event with the entire family and celebrate The Fairgrounds' 14th annual holiday season of the Festival of Lights opening on November 23, 2018, running every weekend through December 23. Located just 20 minutes south of Buffalo, NY in Hamburg.

Drive through a route featuring over one million dazzling lights. As the path winds around the grounds there will be surprises at every corner. 

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 straight to the North Pole. After you are done writing, make a holiday card for someone special at Tops Winterland Workshop. 

Walk through the North Pole Experience featuring holiday scenes ranging from a charming village to Penguin Palooza! The path will lead you right to the Claus household where you can meet the Big Guy himself. This is a not to miss photo opportunity and one of the only places in the area where photos with Santa are FREE! Just remember to bring your camera!


See You at the Festival of Lights!
