Lights of the Ozarks in Fayetteville’s historic Downtown Square is an annual event, bringing together over 200,000 local and international visitors. This light show features entertainment options for any taste. There, you can go on pony rides, listen to world-known holiday hits, stroll around the city downtown, treat yourself to delicious hot cocoa and Christmas-themed snacks, and enjoy thousands of dazzling lights against a dark backdrop. Don't hesitate to bring your kids with you as Lights of the Ozarks is a family-friendly event.
The festivities begin on the festival's first day with the special Lights of the Ozarks lighting ceremony. Each day, approximately half a million tiny LED light bulbs start shimmering at 5 pm, continuing their twinkling show until 1 am. Admission to the Ozarks is free, but we suggest booking your accommodation in the city in advance as Fayetteville is extremely busy this time of year.
