Celebration In The Oaks

The Most Spectacular Holiday Lights Festival in the Country

The 2020 season is the 34th anniversary of City Park's largest fundraiser, Celebration in the Oaks. This year it will be a driving tour! 

Celebration in the Oaks in City Park is the most spectacular holiday lights festival in the country. City Park’s famous oaks are swathed in over a million twinkling lights and breathtaking light displays are scattered throughout the 2.25 mile driving tour of the Park. With more than 165,000 visitors pouring into the Park to see the magical winter spectacle in previous years, 2020 is a special year and City Park is planning a special event this year with a Driving Tour! 

Proceeds from Celebration in the Oaks benefits the maintenance, care, and beautification of New Orleans City Park.
