November 21 - December 31, 2022

The community and businesses in Incline Village and Crystal Bay, Nevada, are hosting the return of the popular Northern Lights Festival now through the end of the year.

This month-long celebration includes over 20 family-friendly events for locals and visitors to enjoy, including the classics that come back every year: the Tahoe Film Fest on December 1-4, Brunch with Santa on December 12, and TOCCATA’s Messiah on December 13.

Thanks to our lighting sponsors, Incline Village has holiday lights! Check out the trees decorated on Tahoe Boulevard at Northwood and at Village. Businesses and residents will be entering the Deck the Halls Lighting Contest and giving everyone a reason to take a drive through our Northern Lights extravaganza.

NEW THIS YEAR is Candy Cane Village, a lighting and community event on UNR at Lake Tahoe campus on December 3. Nevada Santa and Mrs. Lollie Claus will be on hand for entertainment and photos. They will arrive in a fire engine courtesy of the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District.
