Lake Julian Festival of Lights has become a tradition for many mountain families and visitors. The driving-only tour includes thousands of dazzling lights and displays placed along a magical journey on the road circling Lake Julian Park.

Lake Julian Festival of Lights takes place nightly from December 3-23 from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Please check our Facebook event page for information on closings due to winter weather.

Tickets are $10 at the gate for standard passenger cars/vans ($8 in advance); $25 for sprinter vans, trailblazers, and conversion vans ($20 in advance); and $50 for buses and motorcoaches ($40 in advance). A portion of the proceeds benefit Buncombe County Special Olympics.
