Introducing SkyLand’s Festival of Lights: Celebrate Christmas in Sevierville

There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than by visiting the Smoky Mountains — especially this year! SkyLand Ranch is introducing an incredible Festival of Lights at its Sevierville attraction. SkyLand’s Festival of Lights at the Ranch kicks off on November 3, 2023 and runs through the end of Smoky Mountain Winterfest.

SkyLand’s Festival of Lights at the Ranch will have everything guests need and more to celebrate the holidays. The holiday event will feature more than 100 displays with up to 1 million lights, including a light-up nativity scene, light-up cowboy scenes, and a 25-foot tall LED Christmas tree as a centerpiece in the courtyard. Guests will also get to enjoy a full tunnel of lights that stretches from the courtyard to the entrance of the Legacy Lookout, where they’ll be able to see the millions of lights of the city below.

“The SkyLand Festival of Lights at the Ranch will be one of the most unique Christmas light shows in the Smoky Mountains,” said Jordan Briggs, Director of Sales and Marketing at SkyLand Ranch. “With over half a million lights on top of the 300′ mountain, unique cowboy themed displays, and of course traditional Christmas displays, this festival is sure to become a family favorite for years to come.”

In addition to lights, SkyLand’s Festival of Lights will also have a realistic nativity scene and more themed areas. For a sweet holiday treat, be sure to stop by SkyLand Cafe & Bakery, which will be transformed into a themed North Pole bakery.

SkyLand’s Festival of Lights at the Ranch begins November 3 and runs from 6 pm to 9 pm nightly during Smoky Mountain Winterfest. A separate ticket to the light festival from the general ranch admission is required for entry.

SkyLand Ranch in Sevierville opened to the public on November 4, 2022. Set on a 100-acre farm, SkyLand Ranch combines the best parts about the Smoky Mountains into one must-visit attraction.
