The Umpqua Valley's Favorite Holiday Tradition

The Festival of Lights has become an annual tradition in Douglas County, drawing 25,000 visitors per year and generating hundreds of thousands of dollars for Rotary Club scholarships and service projects since 1993.

The Festival of Lights opens at River Forks Park Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019 and runs through Wed., January 1, 2020.

For just $10 per car, visitors enjoy 90 light displays containing nearly 500,000 lights and all the traditional attractions that have made the Festival famous, including the Holiday Village, wagon rides, the World’s Largest Nutcracker and visits from Santa Claus himself!

The Holiday Village is open Thursday through Sunday evenings through Christmas Eve in Helleck Hall. With Santa Claus, a model train set, cookies, candies, warm cider and souvenirs for sale, the Holiday Village is a must see.


Wagon rides are offered Thursday through Sunday nights for $5/person.

Several special nights are scheduled throughout the season, allowing thousands of people to see the attractions for free through special offers from our generous sponsors. The Festival of Lights also shares gate receipts with worthy local organizations like the Boys & Girls Club of the Umpqua Valley and Saving Grace Pet Adoption Center.
