Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland Lights, Asheville

Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland Lights, Asheville

November 27-December 30, 2015
Drive through Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland at the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center in Fletcher (near the Asheville Airport). This award-winning Christmas light and music extravaganza is a two-mile maze filled with hundreds of thousands of LED lights performing in perfect synchronization with the Christmas tunes playing through your car radio.

New for this season, see how Santa and his friends vacation in the Blue Ridge Mountains with huge comical displays. This tech-heavy show will also include the animated arch with 3,600 computerized channels.

Christmas Lights

Drive slowly throught the maze with lots of twists and turns so you can view the displays from many angles. If you want to stop to enjoy, look for wide areas of the route to pull over out of the way of other drivers.

Shadrack hosted its first synchronized light show in 2007, and because of the tremendous response, has taken the show on the road. This spectacle takes light shows to a whole new level, integrating cutting-edge technology, lights, music and movement with all custom-built animated elements featuring 100% environmentally friendly LED lights.

Two other nearby light shows include Winter Lights at the NC Arboretum and Festival of Lights at Lake Julian.
