Christmas season events in the Lexington and Frankfort, Kentucky area

This year, ring in the holidays by taking part in some fun winter activities. You won’t want to miss these festive, cheerful events in Lexington for you and your family to enjoy this holiday season. Here are some of Frankfort Toyota’s favorite fun winter events.

Southern Lights: Spectacular Sights on Holiday Nights

Since Lexington is the horse capital of the world, it doesn’t fail to offer some festive, equine entertainment during the holidays. This year, come out to Kentucky Horse Park for Southern Lights: Spectacular Sights on Holiday Nights, which is Kentucky’s largest light festival and attracts over 120,000 guests each year. Open from November 17th to December 31st, bring your family on this 3-mile driving tour through thousands of lights, and take part in the on-foot activities like visits with Santa, an exotic petting zoo, and numerous holiday craft vendors as well.

Christmas on the Estate and Antebellum Christmas

Come enjoy the charm of years past at two different holiday events at historic sites. On December 2nd, head to the Henry Clay Estate for A Kentucky Christmas at Ashland, where you can stroll through the mansion and marvel at the holiday décor on display during the candlelight tours. There will also be vendors on the lawn of the Estate for you to browse and enjoy.

Alternatively, head to the Waveland State Historic Site where you can see Dickens’ A Christmas Carol performed before you as you follow the scenes through the rooms of the house and experience what Christmas was like on a Bluegrass plantation. Performances will be held December 1st-3rd, 8th-10th, and 15th-17th.

Come out this season and take part in the holiday cheer. We hope you enjoy our favorite winter events!
