Peace, Love & Lights is back and better, brighter, and BIGGER than last year!

From the week of Thanksgiving until just after New Year’s Day, experience drive-thru holiday winter lights on the Bethel Woods grounds from the comfort of your car: just turn off your headlights and follow the magical glow. There is nothing else quite like this holiday lighting event in the area.

What's Different?

LONGER: The route has grown from 1 mile to 1.7 miles!

FRESHER: The entrance will be in a different location this year to accommodate for the expansion.

NEWER: All new themed areas and added lighting displays to expand on existing areas you know and love. Our festival of lights has the following areas this year: 

+ NEW YORK - A New Holiday Lighting Experience! 

+ Holidays Around The World - Also New in 2021-2022!

+ Snowflake Alley

+ Christmas

+ Candy Cane Lane

+ Enchanted Forest

+ Groovy Way

Plus, after your drive head up to the Market Sheds for the Holiday Hub to warm up, unwind with seasonal refreshments, and be dazzled by the Musical Mega Trees light display, featuring a cluster of five decorated Christmas trees of varying sizes with the largest at 30-feet tall, as they light up in synch to holiday tunes. As an added bonus this year, for two weekends join us for the 2021 Holiday Market in conjunction with Peace Love & Lights.

NOTE: Effective December 13th and in accordance with the Governor’s new guidelines, visitors to The Holiday Hub must wear masks regardless of vaccination status when not seated at their table.
