Exploring Minnesota and Beyond.

2020 Minnesota Holiday Lights Display Guide

With more than 70 displays around Minnesota and Western Wisconsin, explore one of the most complete and up-to-date holiday light guides for 2020. Powered by Sam's Christmas Village & Light Tour.

After making it through the year that is 2020, we could all use an extra cup of holiday cheer.

Driving around looking at Christmas light shows around MN with your family is an uplifting, physically-distant activity! Plus, in many cases, it’s relatively inexpensive.

This Holiday Lights Display Guide started when I launched Give Me The Mike in 2017, and I love compiling the list every year. It keeps growing and growing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I like creating it.

I am still adding Christmas light shows to this guide. I do need to hear directly from homeowners or organizers, however. To list your display, click here.

Please share it with those you love, and most of all, happy holidays!


This 2020 Minnesota Holiday Lights Display Guide is powered by Sam’s Christmas Village & Light Tour.

It should also be noted that tickets for the display at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum are completely sold out for season (as of November 9). They reduced the number of people allowed at the Arboretum due to COVID-19.
