Light It Up: Twin Cities & Greater Minnesota Christmas & Holiday Light Displays

Twin Cities Holiday Lights - Map Your Route Banner

Who knew there were this many holiday light displays out there? These people are amazing. They don’t do this for money (although some collect a little something for a charity), but year after year they get out in Minnesota weather and put up displays for the community to enjoy. Please remember to be respectful of the homeowners and their neighbors when viewing these light displays.

We have also included Twin Cities-area community Christmas tree lightings in our lists of holiday light displays. Again, we’re crossing our fingers on these but will keep updating as info comes in. Even if the tree lightings cannot be public events this year, check out these locations after the lighting date. Displays will be up all month.  This year, we have also been blessed with quite a few new city-sponsored contests. These are wonderful for getting a map of light displays all in one town.

Whether you plan your route around the verified light displays or get adventurous and try them all, we would love to hear from you! We always appreciate the feedback if you find any holiday light displays that are no longer happening or have a site to add.

(Most recently updated 12/15/20).

We’ve divided these displays by areas of the metro and have featured addresses who have personally verified or have active websites or Facebook pages. Feel like going for a family adventure? Plan your route along some historically festive sites.

  17. I have now completed my list of South East venues. Two quick notes first, both from Inver Grove Heights. The huge display on Ann Marie Trail is retired. However the neighborhood just a 1/2 mile east of there (86th Court E and Applegate Way) is very cool. Most homes participate and all of the trees are simply amazing. Still worth the trip to this neighborhood. Second is 6451 Bechman Court, house that had the synchronized light and santa video in the window has moved away. However, the new people did put some decorations up plus the whole Cul-de-sac stepped up and all of the home participate. This is still worth the trip.
