Winterlights at Newfields opened to rave reviews and sold-out nights during the last holiday season and this year promises to be another landmark year! You’ll want to be sure to purchase your tickets in advance (like, maybe today?) so you don’t miss out this winter. Winterlights is open 5pm – 9pm nightly, November 18 – January 6th.

Carolers singing songs, adults and children strolling along the paths beneath and among lights that shine as bright as day and groups of people gathered around fire-pits, roasting marshmallows to create s’mores. And who could forget the glorious hot chocolate and hot cider — perfectly spiked for the 21+ crowd.

This year, the team at Newfields has added nearly half a million more lights (I have no idea where, it doesn’t seem possible) to create an even more awe-struck experience. You’ll also see a newly added Wintermarket, featuring local food and beverage options like Sun King Brewery, Gallery Pastry Shop, and Circle City Soups before and after you enter The Garden.

Bundle up, bring everyone along and get ready for breath-taking moments in the light. Santa will be at Winterlights on Tuesday nights in December.

Advance tickets (online) are $20 per person (members save $5), youth age 6-17 pay $12 admission and children 5 and under enter free with paid adult.
