The Festival of Lights is made possible by our wonderful sponsors – corporate, independent businesses and individuals.
Individual donations can be made on this site. We are only accepting electronic donations this year due to the current Covid mitigations. ALL donations collected are given back to the community.
Thank you to everyone that has been to the Aurora Festival of Lights this year. We are working hard to bring a wonderful FREE event to our community and we have had record turnout this year on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. There will be a 2 hour plus wait and we urge you to plan accordingly. There is less wait time if you are able to come out Mondays – Thursdays 5pm – 9m. The lights are ALL on timers, so they will automatically turn on by 5pm and OFF shortly after closing time, which is 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 9pm Sunday – Thursday. Enter at Smith Blvd and 5th Ave only AVOID Montgomery Road, Ashland and Howell. Once you get to Smith Blvd and 5th Ave, there is a Minimum wait time of 30 minutes from that point. We appreciate your SUPPORT and PATIENCE. If you are able to donate this year, please visit www.aurorafestivaloflights.com Thank you.
