Festival of Lights Logo

BACK IN 2021 AND BETTER THAN EVER!

The festival of lights has been a holiday tradition for more than 30 years. Each year, the festival includes holiday favorites like the community sing-along, lighting of the community tree in Center City Park, and carolers and acoustic performances along Elm Street. Enjoy a laser show at the corner of MLK and S. Elm Street, find Santa in Hamburger Square, and roast marshmallows along the way!

You’ll find plenty of delicious treats throughout downtown and don’t forget – finalize your shopping at one of the many downtown merchants who will be open late for Festival of Lights!


REMINDER: MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING, USE HAND SANITIZER/WASH YOUR HANDS, WEAR A MASK,
​STAY HOME IF YOU'VE BEEN FEELING SICK.


 


The Downtown in December Committee will continue to monitor CDC, North Carolina and Guilford County COVID guidelines and will make appropriate modifications as needed, up to and including cancellation of events if necessary.
