Indianapolis Christmas Light Displays 2021

It’s time to light up the holiday season with some of the best Christmas light displays in the Indianapolis area!

We will kick this guide off with an interactive map presented by Indy With Kids. While our guide lists the big hitters for displays in this area, the interactive map allows you to discover local homes who go above and beyond for holiday displays! It easily allows you to coordinate a light filled drive for you and your family in areas closest to you.

1. Christmas Night of Lights

This drive-through light display is hosted by Triton Light Show and is held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds! It is the largest synchronized light show in the Indianapolis area. What this means is that it is synchronized with music that you play over your car radio as you enjoy it from the comfort and warmth of your vehicle!

Cost per Car Load
$30 per car up to 8 people
$50 per car up to 9-15 people
$75 per car up to 16-35

The show runs from November 12, 2021 to January 2, 2022. For more details and to purchase tickets follow the link here!
