Forest of Lights at Fair Oaks Farms


The one-of-a-kind Forest of Lights at Fair Oaks Farms is an affordable holiday must-do for all families and friends this season.  For $10 a ticket, or $35 for a family of four (including treats!), this is a memorable experience that will delight all ages (including your pup, who can join for free!)

Every evening at 5pm, the one-mile nature trail at Fair Oaks Farms lights up for a magical walk through the woods.   Changing scenes of lights and interactive color displays all create perfect photo opportunities for families and friends.  

Visitors start the journey off along a pathway of snowflakes while a classic, festive, winter concert of lights dances in sync with music in the Musical Woods.  The trail pops with internationally-acclaimed artists’ displays of glowing sculptures. A grove of interactive disco balls appears along the trail that lights up the night, while you control the dancing lights! The enchanting path to Mistletoe Magic winds around towards an elegant and intimate grove where a marriage proposal space is the setting for the perfect memory for anyone considering popping the question this season. 


Along the trail, visitors can purchase adult beverages or sweet holiday treats at the trail-side Forest Pub, while everyone can warm up, sip hot chocolate and roast s’mores at the many toasty bonfires. 

The Forest of Lights is perfect for all ages and all leashed, four-legged friends too. 

The Nature Trail is a stone trail and can accommodate strollers and wheelchairs that have sturdy, thick tires.  Please contact Jacqueline at or call at 219-394-5423 for any special accommodations you might require or to learn more the special marriage proposal packages.

The Forest of Lights is open Every Night through January 2nd
