Southern Lights is open nightly, November 26 -December 31 (Closed Christmas Eve). Thursdays-Sundays are very popular nights at Southern Lights. During these nights, long lines and wait times should be expected. We highly recommend purchasing tickets online.
Named one of Kentucky’s Top 10 Winter/Holiday Festivals and Events by Kentucky Travel and Tourism, Southern Lights is a favorite holiday tradition throughout the Bluegrass and beyond. Southern Lights is a three-mile driving tour of lights that is a joy for the whole family!
At the end of the route, we invite you to park and explore the Holiday Village (included in admission). The Holiday Village features photos with Santa, Santa’s North Pole Mailbox (where children can drop off their Christmas List), Animal Land, Mini Train rides, Bluegrass Miniature Train Display, and the Kentucky Horse Park Gift Shop. Grab a quick snack in the village or sit down for dinner at Tootie’s Peppermint Café to complete your visit.
Public restrooms are available by the Campground Entrance and Visitor Center and restaurant.
