Nights of Lights 2019-2020

Dazzling holiday display of three million lights in St. Augustine.

During the Christmas holidays, the city of St. Augustine lights up and becomes a festival of twinkling white lights as it hosts its annual Nights of Lights holiday display. Visitors and long-time residents alike are treated to a wonderland of lights adorning the ancient city, beginning at the Plaza de la Constitución, with its stunning holiday tree in the center and oaks strung with lights, and stretching out to illuminate all of St. Augustine's historic district. From roof shingle to doorway entrance, the downtown buildings take on a glow of holiday cheer, with millions of twinkling white lights covering the historic sites, bed and breakfasts, museums, restaurants and shops of the nation's oldest city.

St. Augustine's Nights of Lights celebrates its 26th anniversary this year. The festival traces its origin to the Spanish tradition of displaying a white candle in the window during the Christmas holidays. In 2018-19, the tradition continues, with some three million white lights twinkling on the wonderful old buildings and landmarks along the bayfront and throughout the city's brick-lined streets. The lights will be up from November 23, 2019, to January 31, 2020.

Nights of Lights has become famous around the world as one of the finest places to see holiday lights. The festival has been featured on top ten lists in publications like National Geographic and Rachael Ray magazines.
