Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park

The 2017 Stephen Foster State Park Festival of Lights will run through Saturday, December 23. Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park and the Stephen Foster Citizens Support Organization has been preparing for illuminating the park with holiday lights once again!

The 2017 Festival of Lights will be ablaze this holiday season until December 24, 2017. The Festival of Lights has grown over the years and has been named a Top 20 Event in the Southeast United States for almost a decade. Last year was a new beginning for the Festival of Lights and they will continue the rebuilding by constantly working to evolve the Festival, keeping it fresh and enjoyable for all.
They will still have the well-loved family tradition of the classic Festival of Lights on their Holiday Magic Nights! Featuring free hot cocoa, popcorn, marshmallow roasting, bonfire, craft activities, snow flurries, train display, Gift Shop, music in the Tower and of course Santa! The last ticket sold will be at 8:30 PM.

Silent Nights will be weeknights, Monday through Thursday, and is part of our effort to lessen lines and create a more intimate experience for visitors. Load up the family and come enjoy the beautiful light displays at your leisure. They encourage you to park and walk through the lights, spend time with your family, take photos and make memories!

 Park staff and volunteers have been pulling double duty the past few years working hard to make visitors smile and are always looking for volunteers to help out. If you are interested, please give them a call at 386-397-2733. They would love to have you!
