Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park and the Stephen Foster Citizens Support Organization, is preparing to illuminate the park with holiday lights once again! The 2017 Festival of Lights will flip the switch Friday December 1, 2017 and will be ablaze this holiday season until December 24, 2017. The Festival of Lights has grown over the years and has been named a Top 20 Event in the Southeast United States for almost a decade.
Last year was a new beginning for the Festival of Lights and we will continue the rebuilding by constantly working to evolve the Festival, keeping it fresh and enjoyable for all. We are still the well-loved family tradition of the classic Festival of Holiday Magic Nights! Featuring free hot cocoa, popcorn, marshmallow roasting, bonfire, craft activities, snow flurries, train display, Gift Shop, music in the Tower and of course Santa! The last ticket sold and the entry gates will close at 8:30 p.m.
Holiday Magic Nights: Select Dates $3.00 per person. Children under 3 Free.
As the Festival of Lights has grown so has the demand for extra hands. Park staff and volunteers have been pulling double duty the past few years working hard to make our visitors smile. We are always looking for volunteers to help us out, if you are interested in helping to decorate or volunteering during the Festival please give us a call at (386) 397-2733. We would love to have you!
