Drive-Thru Christmas Lights Returns for 2023 at the Brown County Fairgrounds!

We LOVE hunting for the BEST Christmas lights in the Fox Cities and were excited to find out the popular Christmas drive-thru lights destination at the Brown County Fairgrounds has returned after a hiatus! Holiday Lights on the Fox (previously Santa’s Rock N Lights) is now locally owned and bigger than ever! The one-mile drive-thru light show has what feels like a million lights! With nearly 1,000 programmable elements and over 100,000 animated twinkling lights dancing to Christmas music tuned radios to 88.7 FM, the Brown County Fairgrounds is transformed into a winter wonderland. The fun lighted displays include Santa riding a motorcycle, giant reindeer, emojis, decorated construction equipment (including tractors and diggers!), 20+ foot dinosaurs, and more.

The snow is completely viewed from the comfort of your warm car, but there is an opportunity to park and take photos at the end. We recommend not missing this fun photo opportunity!

The show runs Tuesday through Sunday (closed Mondays) from 4:30 to 10:00 pm, including Christmas and New Year’s Day. Admission is $25 cash or $30 credit card per car. No need to purchase tickets in advance. Pay as you arrive. Note that there are no bathrooms available, so make sure everyone goes before leaving!
