Recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest as the “Largest Holiday Light Show West of the Mississippi”, the 31st annual Safeway Winter Wonderland powered by Advantis Credit Union, will grab your attention with glimmers and glows around every corner.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Sunshine Division‘s year-round hunger relief efforts that provide thousands of free, nutritious meals to Portland families in need.

Since 1993, over two million visitors have journeyed through Winter Wonderland as a festive tradition to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season with families, friends, and social organizations.

Spectators can enjoy the most spectacular drive-through light show in the region from the comfort of their own vehicles, viewing over 250 colorful light set pieces and many fully animated scenes along the way.

Buy your tickets to this year’s show here.

We look forward to welcoming you this season!

Best Times to See the Show

Beat the rush and enjoy the light show at your own pace! Weekends are always popular times, as is the week of Christmas. To avoid the crowds, plan on attending the Safeway Winter Wonderland, powered by Advantis Credit Union, in early December, or during weeknights.

You can also buy tickets to use the Toyota VIP Fast Lane for a quicker trip around the lights.

Note: Saturday nights are VERY busy. Primetime hours can be 50+ minute wait.  The first hour is always the best time to come for little to no wait.
