What's Different?

NEW SCHEDULE: We'd hate for you to show up for some holiday fun and for us to not be open. In 2022, we will be operating on a partial schedule from November 25 thru December 11, and then daily December 15 thru January 1, 2023

EVEN MORE LIGHTS: We're bringing back all of the themed areas you know and love, but adding winter light displays throughout the route for you to marvel at! This year, our festival of lights has the following areas: New York; Holidays Around The World; Snowflake Alley; Christmas; Candy Cane Lane; Enchanted Forest; and as a nod to our historic site, Groovy Way. 

EXTRA WAYS TO HAVE FUN: Whether you're sweetening the drive with a box of fresh-baked goodies, getting your holiday shopping done, visiting The '60s Museum, or unwinding during our first-ever Gingerbread Build & Sip, make the most of your visit to Bethel Woods with one of our creative add-ons. 

Visit The Holiday Hub

Presented by The Kartrite Resort & Indoor Waterpark.

The fun doesn’t end when your drive is over! Dine by the fire with comfort food, a DIY s’mores kit, holiday drinks, and more! Check out the mesmerizing musical mega trees and take plenty of pictures.

Located on the Bethel Woods Upper Campus; open at 5 PM beginning December 1. Not open on Mondays. Free entry.

Through artifacts, films, music - and even a hippie bus - you will be inspired not only by what was the most prolific three-day festival in history, but by the ideals that still remain relevant today.
