About Winter Lightfest

The third annual United Way of Abilene Winter Lightfest presented by Christmas D├ęcor and sponsored by the Dian Graves Owen Foundation promises to be BIGGER and BETTER in 2021!

In 2020, over 46,000 guests from all over Texas, the U.S., and Mexico enjoyed Winter Lightfest’s unique displays containing more than 2.1 million lights. As a result, we are pleased to announce that Winter Lightfest’s event provided over $144,000 in direct support to our partner agencies, making West Texas such an amazing place to live!

Bundle up and enjoy the magic as you stroll through the 3/4-mile paths lit with thousands of twinkling lights and breathtaking animated displays! Stop in Christmas Village for refreshments and activities (hot chocolate, food trucks, s’mores, and lots of fun merchandise). Pop on over to Tinseltown to explore the light maze, visit Santa, and check out our The Great Elf Escape, our VR Experience.

Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture your family at our several photo ops.
