About this Event

Meadowlark’s Winter Walk of Lights is open nightly Wednesday, November 11, 2020 through Sunday, January 3, 2021

To Prepare for Your Visit ….

  • The lowest tickets prices can be found online and are sold with specific entrance times so that the flow of visitors can be better managed and to provide ample (free) parking and the most magical experience! 
  • For weekends, holidays and the last two weeks in December, it is advantageous to purchase tickets online well in advance to guarantee your admission. 
  • Some entrance times (especially early evenings) and entire nights may sell out both online and on site at Meadowlark. 
  • Please purchase your tickets online in advance for a no-touch entry option. A limited number of at the door tickets are available for sale at Meadowlark.
  • Please remain in your vehicle until your ticket time or until the outside line subsides to allow you to wait safely on the sidewalk for entry. Please practice social distancing when waiting in line.
  • Masks are required in all areas. Masks may be removed temporarily when eating or drinking.
  • Guests will not be allowed to congregate outside the entrance, inside the Visitor Center, or throughout Winter Walk. We encourage you that if you are meeting others that you coordinate a meeting point in the grass areas near the parking lot and do not join the line to enter until all guests in your party arrive.
  • In order to speed entry, please have your tickets pulled up on your device with your brightness maximized. If you have paper tickets, please have all scannable areas available for the ticket attendant.
  • Staff will be regularly disinfecting common touch points, concessions areas, and restrooms.
  • Retail will be available for purchase. Please do not touch the items unless you are planning to purchase them.
  • Concessions will be available for sale nightly.
  • To protect the health and safety of our employees and guests, we are following Social Distancing Standards recommended by the Center for Disease Control. These standards will be strictly enforced without exception.
  • In addition to social distancing, we are increasing sanitation practices to keep our guests and employees safe. We are cleaning, counters, credit card keypads, door handles, restrooms, interactive displays and other high-touch surfaces.
  • Buildings and restrooms will be open, but access may be restricted based on required capacity limits. Portable toilets are also available in the parking lot and the halfway point of the walk.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as our employees diligently work to provide a safe environment for everyone.
