Friday, November 26th – Sunday, November 28th.

Visit the “Christmas Card Village” of Taylors Falls, MN

This annual event is classic small town holiday charm with three full days of festive fun! The Lighting Festival is held each Thanksgiving weekend and families gather in our charming community to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season. The official opening is the Friday, 6 PM grand lighting of main street and Santa Parade. The festival continues all weekend and includes a medallion hunt, Royal Lady’s Tea, Winter Orchestra Concert, and more!

 

This year’s theme is the Swedish Immigrant Trail, and celebrates the newly built section of the paved trail that connects Taylors Falls to the rest of the Chisago Lakes region. Commemorative ornaments are on sale at area shops!
