Tour of Lights

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Fairfield Bay’s spectacular Tour of Lights! Starting at the Light Up the Bay event, you and your family can drive around the Bay to see all of the dazzling Christmas light displays and vote for your favorite. Displays will be up beginning on the first day of the Tour, ballots will be available for People’s Choice at the Light Up the Bay event, and displays will be on for you and your family to enjoy until 9 pm every night of the Tour. Judging for the Tour of Lights will be completed by 5:00 pm on the last day of the Tour, on [end date], and we’ll announce the winners on the following day!

Festival of Trees

Experience holiday magic at Fairfield Bay’s Festival of Trees! Join us from November 25th through December 4th at the Conference Center for a variety of unique Christmas trees & wreaths, stunning holiday displays, and delicious cookies that will dazzle you and your family. Santa & Mrs. Claus will also be there to greet and take pictures with your family, there will be Clydesdale rides starting in front of the Chamber of Commerce, and groups of carolers will meander through the festival singing Christmas tunes. And don’t forget to make your way to the Town Center where there will be live entertainment – fire dancers!

Christmas Parade

Take a time machine back to see Christmases of years past with the 2nd Annual Fairfield Bay Christmas Parade on November 26th at 6 pm, where the theme will be “Christmas Through the Years.” Each float will represent Christmas in a different decade!
