Where to See Holiday Lights in Fairfield County


In my humble opinion, driving around to see holiday lights after dark is one of the most magical things you can do. To hear my kids oooh and aah from the backseat fills me with all the warm fuzzies. Plus, your kids are strapped into car seats or seat belts, so no need to wrangle your kids, and a bonus is that you can enjoy a hot cup of coffee or hot cocoa while you’re at it. A total win in my book!

We know you are already working so hard to make this season magical for your family, so we did the work for you. We’ve scoured the internet, polled the social media masses, and put together a guide just for you. So dress everyone in cozy holiday jammies, pile into your mom-mobile, crank up the holiday tunes, and see all the best holiday lights in Fairfield County. 

We will update the tour throughout the holiday season as we get more information, so check back to see if we have added more locations! Many of the addresses listed below are private homes or neighborhoods, so please respect these homeowners. If you know of a great light display that isn’t listed below, please e-mail Aarika at aarika@fairfieldcountymom to be added to the list.

The list is updated every Wednesday in December.
