Across from the Anderson Civic Center
Welcome to Anderson’s The Christmas Gift Light Festival charity event at the Anderson Civic Center/Education Center. We have been providing Christmas cheer and charity to the Upstate for over two decades. The Christmas Gift Light Festival is the Upstate’s largest festival of lights with an endless loop around the magical hill of dancing Christmas Lights. Over 48,000 people visit each year to see our lights and help the local charities. Please come drive through our festival of lights any night after Thanksgiving and visit Santa and his elves in the Santa Village.
This year we are growing. We have moved from the 12 acre park to the new 45 acre park, with 2.5 miles of roadway. 3.5 million Christmas lights and a larger Santa village than ever before. With a one-time entry fee for unlimited time in the park, until you decide to leave, you can enjoy all of the sites and wonders of the Christmas Gift. You and your family can enjoy the Marching Soldiers, the Dancing Ballerina, the Nativity Scene, and explore the magical Santa’s Village. We have fun for the whole family at the Christmas Gift Light Festival. If you have been searching for a way to enjoy the Christmas season this year unlike any other, come on over to the Christmas Gift and spend an evening in our festival of lights.
