Who We Are

The second annual United Way of Abilene Winter Lightfest presented by Christmas Décor and sponsored by the Dian Graves Owen Foundation promises to be BIGGER and BETTER in 2020! While several of the crowd favorites from last year are making their return, we are excited to dazzle you with new sites and sounds of the season.

In 2019, over 42,000 guests from all over Texas and the U.S. enjoyed Winter Lightfest’s unique displays containing more than one million lights. As a result, we are pleased to announce that Winter Lightfest’s inaugural event provided over $150,000 in direct support to our 27 partner agencies that make West Texas such an amazing place to live!

We are thrilled to announce thanks to the generosity of a local family we have a new “permanent” home at 2250 EN 10th St. in Abilene. 

Bundle up and enjoy the beautiful nature as you stroll through the tree-lined paths lit with thousands of twinkling lights and breathtaking animated displays! Stop in Christmas Village for refreshments and activities (hot chocolate, food trucks, t-shirts, light of jewelry, and Santa). Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture your family at our several photo ops.

Your support of Winter Lightfest directly benefits United Way of Abilene’s community investment in local non-profit programs
