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

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. Most of these displays run from Thanksgiving weekend through the end of the year. We’ll update as verifications roll in.

We have also included Twin Cities-area community Christmas tree lightings in our lists of holiday light displays.

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.

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.
