THE BRIGHTEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE ON THE WEST COAST IS BACK IN 2022 AND BETTER THAN EVER.
Famous for its beautiful 7-acre botanical gardens and Japanese lily pond, Shore Acres State Park shines with over 325,000 LED lights, animated displays, Santa, choirs, and more. A holiday tradition for the whole family.
This festive annual display debuts on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 24th) and will light up Shore Acres State Park from 4 p.m.-9:30 p.m. each night (including December 24th & 25th) thru December 31st.
NEW THIS YEAR - TIMED ENTRY
This year, Holiday Lights visitation will be through a timed reservation system . In an effort to decrease long wait times and backed-up traffic conditions, Friends of Shore Acres is partnering with OPRD to streamline the process of entering Shore Acres State Park for the extremely popular Holiday Lights event. Entry into the lights is Free, but you must pay the $5 parking fee to park at Shore Acres for the Event.
Here’s how to do it!
Pick your day/time to visit - note that half of the parking tickets will be sold in advance with the rest available within 7 days of entry - for those last-minute planners!!
Print your pass. You must bring the pass with you to enter the park.
NOTE: you will NOT be able to purchase entry tickets at the gate this year. You must do this in advance.
Also note: if you have an annual park pass (12- or 24-month), the Oregon Pacific Coast Pass, a current OR State Park camping confirmation that coincides with the date of event visit, or a special access pass (see website above for more info), the $5 will be waived. You still have to book ONLINE!!You will need to present your event parking pass AND your special pass at the gate.
