AURORA FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS | Free Nightly, Held at Phillips Park in Aurora



THROUGH DECEMBER 25

Enjoy a Mile of Sparkling Lights! A Month of Magical Nights!

The Aurora Festival of Lights –the largest free outdoor drive-through holiday light display in the region - returns for its 17th year with dazzling displays and merry music that will delight children and adults.


The Aurora Festival of Lights runs through Monday, December 25, each night from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Philips Park, 1000 Ray Moses Drive.


Admission is free, but visitors must register for a vehicle entry ticket here. Just one registration per vehicle is required.

Visitors will enjoy a mile of spectacular lighted displays from the comfort of the car while listening to holiday songs on a closed-circuit radio station.


This popular free holiday drive-thru features crowd-favorite displays like jumping reindeer, ice skating bears, old man winter, howling wolves, the holiday golfer, Santa’s toy factory, and fields of gigantic snowflakes, along with new displays.

Gather the family, bundle up, jump in the car and make holiday memories.


More than 50,000 vehicles visited the festival last year, and voluntary, free-will donations collected at the exit of the display support the 'Lighting the Way' grants provided to non-profit and youth organizations in Aurora. Last year, $80,000 was collected!

Groups, organizations, and businesses interested in volunteering at and/or sponsoring the Aurora Festival of Lights should contact MyAurora@aurora-il.org
