2) Support a 501(c)3 nonprofit

Warm Beach Camp and Conference Center makes an impact in the community through programming and hospitality for groups and people of all ages! Last year, with the help of generous donors, over 1,500 kids with economic hardships were given scholarships so they could experience the joy of camp!

3) Support Local Artisans

4) Live Music
If you enjoy live music, The Lights of Christmas is perfect for you! There are various live music performers every night of the festival. Entertainers include; bluegrass & country, acoustic, jazz, community bands, choirs, and carolers. There are also dance groups on some nights. Performances take place over 5 stages spread throughout the festival. If you enjoy live performances, make sure to check the storytellers, and the live Theatre! (The live Theatre is a separately ticketed event, with advanced reservations required.)

5) Food
The festival is populated with various food vendors spread throughout the event. There are many options to choose from and all of them are delicious! You can’t go wrong whether you’re looking for a snack, a meal, or a hot beverage. This year, the festival is welcoming some new vendors and Mrs. Claus’ Bakeshop!

The Lights of Christmas is full of reasons to pack the whole family into the car and make the drive to Stanwood. If you need some more convincing than this list though, visit the Festival, Overnight, and Theatre pages for more information!
