Exploring Minnesota and Beyond

2021 Minnesota Holiday Lights Display Guide

Explore more than 125 holiday light shows in Minnesota and western Wisconsin, many which are free of charge.

Tis the season!

Now for the 5th year, I have published a guide of where to go see Minnesota holiday lights shows near you. This year’s Minnesota Holiday Lights Display Guide features multiple residential displays that boast more than 100,000 lights. And that’s just the beginning. Best of all, many of these displays are free to check out.

Please note: this Guide is best viewed on a desktop. Some videos, and the functionality of the interactive map, do not work on WordPress mobile.

Many thanks to Winter Lights at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum for lighting up the 2021 Guide. More information about their display is below.

This website, Give Me The Mike, has a separate break down of the commercial drive-thru light shows you’ll see advertised on television and the radio. Click here to see which one is best for your crew. Some of them are listed below. Thanks to White Bear Mitsubishi for fueling my 2021 Drive-Thru Lights Guide.

Keep checking back as this Guide grows! I will continue to add displays as homeowners, nonprofits, and organizations submit them. If you have a display that should be included, please fill out this form.

While you’re on my website, check out my other popular Minnesota-centric articles:

I would love for you to join me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I keep things light-hearted and post insider information about what’s happening around Minnesota! 

Happy holidays!
