Winter Lights at The North Carolina Arboretum

Nov. 20, 2020-Jan. 10, 2021, Asheville

The North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville has converted its popular holiday light show into a drive-thru event for 2020, allowing visitors to admire the spectacular holiday lights from the comfort of their own vehicles. The mile-long light show will feature beautifully lit landscapes, nature-themed displays and more. Guests can also tune in to a special radio station featuring holiday music to accompany the show.

The event takes place nightly from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 per personal vehicle when purchased in advance, or $30 at the gate. Arboretum Society members will receive $3 off presale tickets, and discounted pricing is available every Tuesday, excluding Dec. 22 and the week of Nov. 30 through Dec. 3. All proceeds directly support the Arboretum’s programming. To get your tickets, visit or call (828) 665-2492.
