The 30th annual Festival of Lights at Tanglewood Park opens Friday, November 12, 2021 and runs through Saturday, January 1, 2022. The show’s operating hours are 6PM-11PM nightly. Forsyth County Parks and Recreation is excited to have Lowes Foods returning as the title sponsor for the 2021-2022 season.

For the most enjoyable experience, visit Festival of Lights Monday-Thursday evenings early in the season. Friday-Sunday evenings as well as the days just before Christmas are

very busy and extremely long wait times should be expected. We are extremely excited to have our Gift Village open this year! The Gift Village is

anchored by the Gift Shop located inside the Red Barn. The Gift Shop will have holiday crafts, wood workings, seasonal treats, and other fine gifts for sale made by local

artisans. The Gift Shop will be open each night of the show and will close at 11PM Sunday-Thursday and 12AM on Fridays and Saturdays, with the exception of December

31st when it will close at 10PM.

Santa and Mrs. Claus are taking extra safety precautions this season and will not be in attendance at the Festival of Lights. You may visit www.classicclaus.com to find out

information about virtual visits. S’moresville, operated by Lowes Foods, will continue the marshmallow roasting tradition at the Gift Village, right outside the Gift Shop. Lowes will sell roasting sticks

with marshmallows and s’mores kits on-site. Visitors to S’moresville may not bring their own sticks or food items for roasting. S’moresville will close each evening at 10PM and

will be closed the entire evening of December 25th.
