Starry Nights Is One Of The Best Things To Do This Holiday Season

Starry Nights at Shelby Farms Park is a Memphis holiday tradition! Drive through the park’s two miles of twinkling Christmas lights and holiday displays, stop for pictures in the photo areas, and sip on hot chocolate. You can also reserve hayrides and carriage rides though the show.

If you’re looking for Christmas lights in Memphis, Starry Nights is the place to go. You can tune in to FM 119.0 on your car radio for Starry Nights info when you get to the park, and then FM 97.5 for holiday music while you drive through the lights.

Bonus—If it’s chilly outside, you’ll be warm and comfortable in your car!

I Love Memphis is running a Starry Nights giveaway right now on Instagram! check it out here.

How To Get A Free Pass To Starry Nights At Shelby Farms

Starry Night is the park’s biggest fundraiser every year, but they need LOTS of volunteers to help the event run smoothly. If you’ve ever enjoyed the trails, fields, lakes, or playgrounds at Shelby Farms Park, consider giving back a few hours of your time. Info here.

You’ll be outside helping direct traffic, interact with guests, work check-in on special event nights. In exchange, you’ll receive a complimentary pass to the show.

You can find the list of shifts and more information on the Volunteer Odyssey website. To me this sounds like a fun family or group activity!

Can you walk through Starry Nights?

You can walk or bike through Starry Nights on Tuesday, November 29 and Tuesday, December 27. The show will be closed to cars on these days. Leashed dogs are welcome on these days.

Starry Nights tickets range from $15.95 per car to $35 per car. Tickets vary in price depending on when you go and how you pay. You pay less if you sign up for a specific day/time—or more if you get a Flex Ticket that’s good for any day/time. See the full range of ticket prices listed here
