Northeast Ohio’s largest holiday light show, Magic of Lights, has begun at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds.

The drive-through holiday show, with nearly one million lights sparkling along the route, features a variety of festive scenes to celebrate the season, including Candyland, Toyland, Sports Row, 12 Days of Christmas and the notorious Tunnel of Lights.

After two successful years at Victory Park Ohio in North Ridgeville, Magic of Lights has found a new home at the fairgrounds, allowing for an expanded show, increased amount of static and animated light displays, improved traffic flow and an enhanced overall experience.

New this year, Magic of Lights includes an interactive, out-of-vehicle experience, the Jolly Holiday Village. On select dates, this festive village gifts visitors an extra opportunity to embrace the joyous season with a variety of themed activities, sweet treats and visits from Santa.

Giving back to the community is an integral part of Magic of Lights. In 2017, Magic of Lights donated more than $13,500 to local children’s charities as well as contributions to local food banks. This year, Magic of Lights is partnering with the Lebron James Family Foundation and Cuyahoga Farm Bureau scholarship program.

Magic of Lights will run every day through December 31, from 5:30-9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 5:30-10 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

  1. Absolutely fantastic traffic flow was continuously moving Mega tree of lights was outstanding as well as other displays.

    1. I came home to Ohio for Holidays from Sacramento, CA. I saw a commercial on TV about the Magic of Lights What a treat for me this Holiday. We went around 8:30p last night and traffic was light. Only two cars in front of us to enter fairgrounds. Traffic moved at a steady pace throughout display. So so so many AWESOME displays… not sure where to start. From the Evil Kenevil motorcycle display to Santa bouncing basketball between his legs to the Navity display to First Engery Mega Trees to Pepco lighted drive through car wash. And funds benefit one of LeBron James foundations. Displays were all so very cool and awesome. I can’t imagine the hard work from the workers; volunteers and companies that graciously put together the displays for the public to enjoy. THANK YOU Eaton; First Engery; Pepco and all the others companies that donated their time, energy and efforts to making the Magic of Lights possible. I enjoyed and felt the MAGIC. GOOD JOB and BLESSINGS TO ALL.

  2. Lights are beautiful. Holiday village needs work

  3. Be sure to have a full tank of gas!

  4. It takes over one hour waiting in traffic just to get to the front gate to pay. It’s really ridiculous it takes so long to get in. Sad to say won’t come next year!

    1. We went on a Sunday evening after the football game and had no problem. Traffic flowed smoothly and it was very lovely.

    2. Hi Debbie

      Don’t give up, The light displays and the creativity behind each display is well worth the wait. I came home to Ohio for Holidays from Sacramento, CA. All my years living in Cleveland (well over 40 years), I never knew about the Magic of Lights. What a treat for me this Holiday. We went around 8:30p last night and traffic was light. Only two cars in front of us to enter fairgrounds. Traffic moved at a steady pace throughout display. So so so many AWESOME displays… not sure where to start. From the Evil Kenevil motorcycle display to Santa bouncing basketball between his legs to the Navity display to First Engery Mega Trees to Pepco lighted drive through car wash. It was alll so very cool and awesome. I can’t imagine the hard work from the workers; volunteers and companies that graciously put together the displays for the public to enjoy. THANK YOU Eaton; First Engery; Pepco and all the others companies that donated their time, energy and efforts to making the Magic of Lights possible. I enjoyed and felt the MAGIC. GOOD JOB!!!

    How much does it cost?

  7. Layout of magic Festival of Lights at the Berea Fairgrounds. How long does it take to go through it? And where is the Jolly Holiday Village located?

    1. The Jolly Holiday Village is located in the Arts and Crafts Building where you can purchase Smores kits (there is a fire pit outside in the back) visit Santa, ride bumper cars, purchase hot drinks and more. As for drive time it is roughly 15 to 20 minutes as you slowly weave your way through. Add to this a stop at the village you can figure a little over an hour.

      1. Is the Jolly Holiday Village open on Saturday evenings? What are those hours.
        Thank you.
