The 2017 season is Celebration in the Oaks’ 31st anniversary!
Celebration in the Oaks in City Park is one of the most spectacular holiday lights festivals in the country, with more than 165,000 visitors pouring into the Park to see the magical winter spectacle. City Park’s famous oaks are swathed in hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights and breathtaking light displays are scattered throughout 25 acres of the Park, including the Botanical Garden, Storyland, and Carousel Gardens Amusement Park.
Due to the immense popularity of this holiday attraction, we strongly recommend buying tickets in advance from this link to avoid waiting in ticket lines. Saturdays are the most heavily attended nights. You will find smaller crowds on other nights.
